## Solutions

Solution 1: Grouping and Aggregation

We can directly group the Followers table by user_id, and use the COUNT function to count the number of followers for each user.

• # Write your MySQL query statement below
SELECT user_id, COUNT(1) AS followers_count
FROM Followers
GROUP BY 1
ORDER BY 1;
