A relation has:
Relational Schema:
A relational schema shows the relation's name, its attributes and the domain of every attribute. If R is the name of a relation and A_{1}, A_{2}...A_{n} is a list of attributes showing R then R (A1, A_{2}...A_{n}) is known as a relational schema. Every attribute in this relational schema takes a value from some explicit domain called Domain (Ai).
For instance, the relational schema for relation PERSON as in Figure will be: PERSON (PERSON_ID:integer, NAME: string, AGE:integer, ADDRESS:string)
Total number of attributes in a relation indicates the degree of a relation. Hence the
PERSON relation includes four attributes, so this relation is of degree 4
