you can do it like this:
rm "10k most"
 rm 10k\ most\
surely there are other ways too.

If you use tab completion it'll fill in the delimiters for you.

If your file names have spaces inbetween them enclose them with "" qoutes when running any linux command from terminal.

I just wanted to add in bash when you use tab to auto fill words, then just when you get to the first space, hit space and then tab, it should auto put the \ in it.
