# SQL Exercises: Number of non NULL city values for salesmen

## SQL Aggregate Functions: Exercise-19 with Solution

From the following table, write a SQL query to count the number of salespeople in a city. Return number of salespeople.

Sample table: salesman

``` salesman_id |    name    |   city   | commission
-------------+------------+----------+------------
5001 | James Hoog | New York |       0.15
5002 | Nail Knite | Paris    |       0.13
5005 | Pit Alex   | London   |       0.11
5006 | Mc Lyon    | Paris    |       0.14
5007 | Paul Adam  | Rome     |       0.13
5003 | Lauson Hen | San Jose |       0.12
```

Sample Solution :

``````-- This query counts the number of rows in the 'salesman' table where the 'city' is not NULL.
SELECT COUNT(*)
-- Specifies the table from which to retrieve the data (in this case, 'salesman').
FROM salesman
-- Filters the rows to only include those where the 'city' is not NULL.
WHERE city IS NOT NULL;
``````

Output of the Query:

```count
6
```
