Writing a shell script, Uni first year

Hi, we were given a list of instructions to follow and all was going well until I got to a particular problem.

I'm stuck as I can only use each command once. Any help is much appreciated! (sorry for being a noob)

show us what you have tried (but doesn't meet the criteria) and we can probably help steer you towards a solution.
