Database First(1st) Normal form and repeating groups

Let’s study about Database First(1st) Normal form and repeating groups.

What is the first normal form?

A relation/table is in the first normal form if it does not contains repeating groups.

What is a repeating group?

A repeating group is a group of two or more rows/records for an instance of an entity.

Example of first normal form

Roll No  Name Marks
1 Shahzeb 98
2 Basit 90
3 Sameed 44
2 Basit 70

Here, Roll No 2 is the repeating group because Roll number 2 is for only one instance of an entity student.

How to convert a table into the first normal form?

We will remove the repeating groups;

1 Shahzeb 98

3 Sameed 44
