Databases SQL Basics Finding the Data You Want Filtering by Comparing Values

seems to be simple but I am missing something. task is get results of home team scores <=. Not liking my syntax

SELECT home_score FROM results WHERE home_score <= 12;

This is what I used, not sure where my error is. Thanks for the assistance.

The instructions say "Find all results where the home team's score is above 12.", so there are two issues:

  • "Find all results" implies you should "show all columns", so select " * " instead of "home_score"
  • they ask for records where score "is above 12", but "<=" means "less than or equal"
