## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am trying to write the RELATIONAL ALGEBRA statement for a query defined as follows:

"Find the diseases for which there is only one medication"

I have a table TREATMENT with two attributes, DISEASE & MEDICATION

TREATMENT (disease, medication)

This table holds a list of diseases and corresponding medication, of course for each diseases that can potentially be multiple medications, and for some only one. For example assume you have something that resembles the following:

Disease | Medication

--------------------

FLU | med1

FLU | med2

CANCER | med3

HIV | med4

FLU | med5

In this case you would expect to get CANCER & HIV (as they only have 1 corresponding medication) whereas FLU would be excluded because it has 3... (etc...)

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks,
