    Hello and Welcome.
    Are these homework questions? Homework/Schoolwork is strictly forbidden here. These are fairly easy questions and little bit of Google goes a long ways.
    Linux: How to create a directory
    Linux: command to create a blank, text file

    Its an assignment we were given questions and told to find the answers and he gave us a list of sources this was one of them along with the others below

    Check out these Linux sites and resources:

    Google.com (Linux area on the Internet from Google)
    Linux.com (Some popular download sites)
    Linux Online (Facts about downloading Linux)
    DistroWatch.com ( Over 100 of the most popular Linux distributions)

    Well, I'll let this continue as long as you do not ask for direct answers to anything but be advised, one of the other moderators/trusted penguins may decide to close this on his own.
    In my opinion, If we supply you with the answers, then you really haven't learned anything, right? SO just ask for general direction help and I think you'll be ok.
    I think the links I posted should be more than enough to get the answers you wanted. Another good place for help is the man pages installed in most systems. Open a terminal window and type
    Code:
    man mkdir
    Press Q to quit. There is a man page for many common Linux commands.
