In database management an aggregate function is a function where the values of multiple rows are grouped together as input on certain criteria to form a single value of more significant meaning.   Various Aggregate Functions
1) Count()
2) Sum()
3) Avg()
4) Min()
5) Max()
  Now let us understand each Aggregate function with a example:
Id     Name     Salary
1       A        80
2       B        40
3       C        60
4       D        70
5       E        60
6       F        Null
  Count():   Count(*): Returns total number of records .i.e 6. Count(salary): Return number of Non Null values over the column salary. i.e 5. Count(Distinct Salary):  Return number of distinct Non Null values over the column salary .i.e 4   Sum():   sum(salary):  Sum all Non Null values of Column salary i.e., 310 sum(Distinct salary): Sum of all distinct Non-Null values i.e., 250.   Avg():   Avg(salary) = Sum(salary) / count(salary) = 310/5 Avg(Distinct salary) = sum(Distinct salary) / Count(Distinct Salary) = 250/4   Min():   Min(salary): Minimum value in the salary column except NULL i.e., 40. Max(salary): Maximum value in the salary i.e., 80.
