The question:

What are the different intersections in mathematics with pictures?

The answer:

What an open ended question. I can only say the answer to this question is only limited by your imagination.

But here are some examples of graphical representations of intersections in mathematics: (The internet system we use for questions and comments will only allow graphics to be uploaded for question pages, but not comment pages such as this one. Therefore, I’m going to direct you to some pictorials on other web pages. This will give you the chance to visualize what I am talking about.)
