0

if you want to take ssn as key then two tables required

if you make cid as key then only one table is sufficient....

The one table look like as (cid,Cname,ssn,name)

which cid doesn't map to ssn ===> put NULL

what is causing the problem if we take ssn as the key ? all in one table

@daksirp,

Then how could you find the courses which are not participating in the relation?
0

we will make ssn as the key, <ssn, name, cid, cname>

wherever courses is not participating in relation corresponding to ssn, we will put NULL.

by seeing NULL, we come to know it is not participating in relation.

its my view, correct me if im wrong

You want to put null in ssn?

Note that ssn is key, it cannot have null or duplicate values

noo, we will put NULL in courses, if courses is not participating, then we will put NULL in courses.

Brother

Let assume professor table contains

1 A

2 B

Courses table contains

101 java

102 php

103 dbms

Now assume

101 map to 1

102 map to 2

Now give your table which contains ssn as key
