Hi there, Can anyone help me with this question: Get the 101st to 200th actor from the actors table.

I don't know how to write the query for this question: Get the 101st to 200th actor from the actors table. (No need to use any ordering).

Thanks in advance

You can also forgo using the OFFSET keyword and run the following:

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100, 100;

Just remember that the first number is the OFFSET and that the count starts at 0.

this is also correct answer: SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100, 100;

There are a couple ways to get this, but for me it's all about the between operator.


I would give you the answer but it would just be repeating the link. Let me know if that solves your issue.


Thank you so much Ryan, but that was not the required solution:$

It required to use the keyword LIMIT

Finally, I re-watched again the video, and the solution (for everyone else who doesn't know this answer) is:

SELECT * FROM actors LIMIT 100 OFFSET 100;

Thanks for your time
