Please help

So I'm trying to complete these steps and for some reason I can't get it to work. Could someone walk me through how to do it so I can see what I have either done wrong or maybe missed.

1. Create new user on your system with userid=operator and with your first and last name associated

2. Assign a password for the operator user

3. Create new group called administrators

4. Add operator user to the administrators group (make sure to use non-default group option)

5. Use yum to install finger command

6. Perform finger on operator user

7. Use cat in combination with grep command to list operator line only in /etc/passwd

8. Delete user operator from your system using an option to remove all it's files

9. List /home directory

Thank you
