count problem in oracle SQL

I have table a and table b with column x in both tables.

In table b the column x  can have the same value on several rows while in table a column x only have unique values.

I want to count the number of rows in table a where the same value exists on more than 10000 rows in table b!

awking00Commented:
select x, count(*)
from tableb b
where exists
(select 1 from tablea a
 where a.x = b.x)
group by x
having count(*) > 10000;

select count(*) from A
where X in (select X from B group by X having count(*) > 10000)

awking00,  I think you have the tables backwards.  Other than that, the exists method should also work


bear_2013 - both of our methods assume X is NOT NULL.  Is that a safe assumption?

I seem to have been thinking backwards a lot lately :-)
