    I want to complete the lab, but I am having trouble installing the program using
    the 'make install' command.
    Even though I used sudo commands like 'sudo' to have the allowed permissions to install.
    Is there anyway you can help me with this ?

Can you provide more detail, perhaps the exact error message produced?

By default 'make install' will attempt to create and populate both /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib.

If that turn out to be an ongoing problem, and if it's a personal laptop, you can install things 
elsewhere, such as in your  ~/bin and ~/lib  (and not require root's assistance).
Just uncomment or redefine the value of PREFIX in the top-level Makefile.
