    Patty approaches you about a problem she has managing all of her
    spreadsheets. She has placed a bunch of information about her business in a
    huge spreadsheet that looks like this:
    â•”â•â•â•â•â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•â•¦â•â•â•â•â•â•—

    â•‘ Job â•‘ Description â•‘ City â•‘ State â•‘ Zipcode â•‘ Job

    She needs a better solution. This is too much data, and it is too
    complicated to maintain in a spreadsheet. Patty came back to you again
    because you are so handy with computers. You are thinking about using a
    database, but first, you must conceptualize the business problem in a way
    that makes sense to a database.

    What entities do you see here, and what relationship do you see among
    entities?

    What are the attributes of the entities?

    What are the domains of values that could be stored under each attribute?

    Come on...

    If you are going to try and get people here to do your homework for you, at
    least make an effort to make it look a BIT less like homework...

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
