Exercise #54 (tips and solutions)

In order to employ UNION in the solution 3.10.2, it is not enough to perform unioning by only numGuns column. It is required of a list of columns that it should determine a ship unambiguously. Then duplicates rather then useful information will actually be excluded.

Below, a solution is presented which makes use of this expedient but contains a small mistake. And we leave it to the reader to find it.

  1. SELECT CAST(AVG(numguns*1.0) AS NUMERIC (6,2))
  2. FROM (SELECT ship, type, numguns
  3. FROM Outcomes RIGHT JOIN
  4. Classes ON ship = class
  5. UNION
  6. SELECT name, type, numguns
  7. FROM Ships s JOIN
  8. Classes c ON c.class = s.class
  9. ) AS al_sh
  10. WHERE type = 'bb';
