# Difference between revisions of "Assignment 2 - Data Exploration using SQL"

## Assignment Description

In your first assignment, you explored MTA data about subway fares using a data exploration tool. Now, you will further explore this data set using SQL.

You will use MySQL. Please follow the instructions in the lab notes to install the system.

You can exchange ideas with your classmates, but the work you submit should be your own. Copying is not allowed.

## Submission Instructions

You will submit to NYU Classes two text files:

• as2.sql -- containing the queries you will write to answer the questions below. Use the following template for this file:

``` -- remember to end each query with a semi-colon ```

```use test; ```

```-- ********************Q1******************* ```

```SELECT 'Q1' AS ' '; <insert your query Q1>; ```

```-- ********************Q2******************* ```

```SELECT 'Q2' AS ' '; <insert your query Q1>; ```

....
