Factbook project in R path

In the solutions for the Factbook project in the R path, one line is not running:

Investigating outlier values

q3 = “SELECT * FROM facts WHERE (population == MAX(population))”
result3 = dbGetQuery(conn, q3)

Error message: Error: misuse of aggregate function MAX()

Please advise.

When using an aggregate function (sum / count / … ), you also have to make use of the GROUP BY clause. Explore in this direction. If you’ll get stuck again, please, let us know, we’ll be happy to help further!

Try:
q3 <- “SELECT * FROM facts WHERE population == (SELECT MIN(population) FROM facts)”
It is the same problem we found in the first two steps of the subqueries mission.
