This reads an awful lot like homework. Why would you want to know how to use grep in a certain way if you can just use wc... unless it's a specific homework question? Assuming that this is homework, please respect the rules you have agreed to and not expect help with queries such as these.

Even if it is homework ... at least be decent enough to give it a go first before you blatantly try to have someone else do it for you.
