What is wrong here ? SELECT name, ROUND(price/1.4,2) AS “price_gbp” FROM products; What is wrong here?

In an ecommerce database we have a products table with the columns id, name, category, description, price and stock_count. The price is in USD. Write a query that returns the product name and price in Pounds Sterling (GBP). The current exchange rate is 1.4 USD to every 1 GBP. Alias the calculated price to price_gbp. Round to two decimal places.

Hi Sveta!

I just tried this:

SELECT name, ROUND(price/1.4, 2) AS price_gbp
FROM products;

And it passed.

I think you just need to lose the double-quotes around price_gbp.

Actually, I just tried it with the quotes and it still passed:

SELECT name, ROUND(price/1.4, 2) AS "price_gbp"
FROM products;


I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
