As the Junior Data Scientist of Knight Industries we created a table to keep track of all our operatives: SQL-Basics: Create, Read, Update, Delete

Devon asks us to keep track of our operations aka missions as well. For the first implementation let us assume that a mission has one operative and an operative can participate in multiple missions. that’s what we call an 1 to many relationship.

  +------------+                 +----------+

In SQL-Basics

we learned the standard SQL statements to create a table, insert data into it, retrieving data from tables and altering data. Now we want to do even

Devon is a data driven man and to evaluate our mission, he likes to know from us:

    • the mission with the highest cost
    • the average mission cost
    • the five most expensive missions


SELECT COUNT(*) FROM missions;
SELECT SUM(total_cost) FROM missions;
SELECT MIN(total_cost) FROM missions;
SELECT MAX(total_cost) FROM missions;
SELECT AVG(total_cost) FROM missions;
SELECT * FROM missions ORDER BY total_cost DESC LIMIT 5;
