SELECT * FROM teams ORDER BY id ASC;

SELECT * FROM teams ORDER BY id DESC;

SELECT * FROM teams ORDER BY team;




Display all records but only the team field. Display records by id number, in ascending order
SELECT team FROM teams ORDER BY id ASC;




Display all records but only the team and nickname fields. Display records by id number, in ascending order
SELECT team, nickname FROM teams ORDER BY id ASC ;




Count the total number of records in teams table
SELECT COUNT(id) FROM teams;




Display all records where the field capacity is more than 30000 but less than 35000
SELECT * FROM teams WHERE capacity > 30000 AND capacity < 35000;




Display records from the team field beginning with the letter b
SELECT * FROM teams WHERE teams LIKE 'b%';




Display records from the team field beginning with the b and a
SELECT * FROM teams WHERE team LIKE 'b%' OR team LIKE 'a%';
