Abstract: Given a real algebraic set $ X$ and a box $ \mathscr {B}$ in $ \mathbb{R}^n$, which is a union of cubes of equal size and with disjoint interiors, we bound the number of cubes that intersect $ X$. As a consequence, we bound the volume of the set of points having distance at most $ \delta $ from $ X \cap \mathscr {B}$, and we estimate the number of integer points in a domain $ \mathscr {D} \subset \mathbb{R}^n$ bounded by algebraic hypersurfaces.
