#29

#30

1, A data set representing a single item

  1. A labeled element of a tuple, e.g. “Address” or “Date of birth”

  2. A set of tuples sharing the same attributes; a set of columns and rows


#31
  1. A record of something. A single data set. Perhaps a name for example.
  2. A column would be an attribute of the row or ‘name’ for this example, so date of birth lets say.
  3. A table would be a representation of the relationship between the name and date of birth in this example.

As simple as this shit sounds, it’s still a bit confusing when you add ‘tuples’ and try to understand rows columns and tables, but without understanding what and how tuples relate…anyone want to elaborate?


#32

Nando,
So the way you understand it, for answer 1, would something like a ‘name’ , a single item, be both a row and a tuple? WTF is a tuple?

  3. What is a table?
    A table is a set of tuples sharing the same attributes; a set of columns or rows. Also known as a Relation or Base relvar.

#34

YC, you are right I wasn’t clear. In fact I was wrong when I called a row a tuple, rows are items. A tuple in this context is the (item, attribute) pair that has a value in a 2D table for example (name, age) = integer number. A relational table is a set of tuples with their values. What do you think ?
