Problems 7–32 are based on the ER model shown in Figure P11.7. Problems 7-10 are based on the following query:

SELECT P_CODE, P_PRICE
FROM PRODUCT
WHERE P_PRICE >= (SELECT AVG(P_PRICE) FROM PRODUCT);

Should you create an index? Why or why not?

Program Plan Intro

Indexes:

Indexing is a technique that is used in SQL for optimizing the performance; indexes are used when a small set of rows needs to be selected from the table that is large in size.

  • The selection of rows is made by specifying conditions.

Rules for using indexes:

The below are the rules how the indexes can be used:

  • When an indexed column appears within itself in the search criteria of “WHERE” or “HAVING” clause.
  • When an indexed column appears within itself in “GROUP BY” or “ORDER BY” clause.
  • When the indexed column is applied with functions MAX and MIN.
  • When the indexed column’s data sparsity is high.

Explanation of Solution

Creating an index:

Yes, it is necessary to create an index for the given query because the column “P_PRICE” will have a high sparsity...
