Count the number of non-ID columns in Eq. (3.1). Count the number of arrows in Eq. (3.2). They should be the same number; is this a coincidence?

**Equation 3.1**

$$
\begin{array}{c|ccc}
Employee & FName & WorksIn & Mngr \\
\hline
1 & Alan & 101 & 2 \\
2 & Ruth & 101 & 2 \\
3 & Kris & 102 & 3
\end{array}
$$
$$
\begin{array}{c|cc}
Department & FName & WorksIn & Mngr \\
\hline
101 & Sales & 1 \\
102 & IT & 3
\end{array}
$$
**Equation 3.2**

## Comments

I guuss Equation 3.1 should read:

Equation 3.1$$ \begin{array}{c|ccc} Employee & FName & WorksIn & Mngr \\ \hline 1 & Alan & 101 & 2 \\ 2 & Ruth & 101 & 2 \\ 3 & Kris & 102 & 3 \end{array} $$ $$ \begin{array}{c|cc} Department & DName & Secr& \\ \hline 101 & Sales & 1 \\ 102 & IT & 3 \end{array} $$ In which case, the number of non-ID columns is 5, the same as the number of arrows in Equation 3.2. This is not a coincidence, since Equation 3.1 is an instantiation of Equation 3.2. In particular, each non-ID column represents the image of the ID column under a function, which is the instantiation of one of the arrows in Equation 3.2.
