You are assigned the job to explain the utility of GROUP BY clause to your fellow members, of how it can be used to produce useful reports. Explain them with proper examples.
The SQL GROUP BY clause can be used to group records of a table on the basis of common values in a column. Such groups can be formed to produce aggregate values such as total, average, count, maximum, minimum etc. The aggregate functions play an important role along with GROUP BY to generate values from such groups formed.
Groups of records give results such highest in groups of classes, average salaries paid in departments, lowest production among groups of product categories etc.
