    Hello

    Yum is a package tool for installing/removing software in a number of distros, including CentOS.

    u can install packages using rpm command or using yum command.
    difference in yum - helps reduce administrative task as it itself resolve dependency issue while installing a package

    You can get information for pretty much any command that you're unfamiliar with from the man pages.
    use
    Code:
     man command_name
    to pull up the information.
