Need SQL statement for the following case

Hi, I have the following two tables: Categories(category_ID, Category_Name), Issues(Issue_ID,Issue_Name, Category_FK)

Each QUestion should belong to one categor.

I need SQL statement that select category_ID, Category_Name and number of issues in each category.

Thank you.

try this

select t1.category_id, count(t2.issue_id)
from categories t1 inner join issues t2 on t1.category_id = t2.category_fk
group by t1.category_id
