You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the database in the above folder.

Create a query showing the number of countries which appear in the Biggest Companies table and not in the Billionaires table.  This is harder than it looks, as you will have to apply grouping to get only the unique countries to appear:

Save this query as JoinByCompany.
