## Solutions

Solution 1: Grouping Aggregation + Subquery

We group the Listings table by city, then calculate the average house price for each city, and finally filter out the cities where the average house price is greater than the national average house price.

• # Write your MySQL query statement below
SELECT city
FROM Listings
GROUP BY city
HAVING AVG(price) > (SELECT AVG(price) FROM Listings)
ORDER BY 1;
