    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•‘ Custome â•‘ Address â•‘ City â•‘ State â•‘ Zipcode â•‘ Phone â•‘
    Store â•‘
    â•‘ Name 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•©â•â•â•â•â•â•£
    â•‘ Job â•‘ Description â•‘ City â•‘ State â•‘ Zipcode â•‘ Job
    Notes â•‘
    â•‘ No. â•‘ â•‘ â•‘ â•‘
    â•‘ â•‘

    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...
