    Unanswered: problem with the logic

    I am trying to understand the logic of the following phrase
    "Salience is dependent on the number of associates a target has. A target's associates are other targets who share the same home location as that target, or who have been on missions with that target"
    PN: The program should create a table with target id and salience.

    some of the tables the schema:
    -----------------------------
    targets - target_id, location_id
    location - location_id, description
    missions_targets - mission_id, target_id
    missions - mission_id, location_id
    agents - agent_id, location_id
    missions_agents - agent_id, mission_id

    I need some assistance because I don't get the right amount of salience.

    Thx a million!!!

    What amount do you get?

    As for understanding the logic, ignore the first sentence (explaining salience) and concentrate on the second sentence (about targets & associates):

    Work out what a target is, and what makes a target an associate. Then you can work out how many associates a target has - that is the salience.
