1 Relational Algebra & Calculus Chapter 4, Part A (Relational Algebra) Query Formulation Exercise

2
2 Exercises Given relational schema: Sailors (sid, sname, rating, age) Reservation (sid, bid, date) Boats (bid, bname, color) 1) Find names of sailors who’ve reserved boat #103 2) Find names of sailors who’ve reserved a red boat 3) Find sailors who’ve reserved a red or a green boat 4) Find sailors who’ve reserved a red and a green boat 5) Find the names of sailors who’ve reserved all boats

3
3 1) Find names of sailors who’ve reserved boat #103 Solution 1: Solution 2 : Solution 3 :

4
4 2) Find names of sailors who’ve reserved a red boat Boats (bid, bname, color) Information about boat color only available in Boats; so need an extra join: A more efficient solution -- why more efficient? A query optimizer can find this, given the first solution!

5
5 3) Find sailors who’ve reserved a red or a green boat Can identify all red or green boats, then find sailors who’ve reserved one of these boats: Can also define Tempboats using union! (How?) What happens if is replaced by in this query?

6
6 4) Find sailors who’ve reserved a red and a green boat Previous approach won’t work! Why? Must identify sailors who’ve reserved red boats, sailors who’ve reserved green boats, then find the intersection (note that sid is a key for Sailors):

7
7 4) Find sailors who’ve reserved a red and a green boat Previous approach won’t work! Why? Must identify sailors who’ve reserved red boats, sailors who’ve reserved green boats, then find the intersection (note that sid is a key for Sailors):

8
8 5) Find the names of sailors who’ve reserved all boats Uses division; schemas of the input relations to division (/) must be carefully chosen: To find sailors who’ve reserved all ‘Interlake’ boats:.....
