Hi professor, Your script should only use Bash structures and the Linux commands that we have covered thus far in the unit. Do not use any advanced Linux commands, such as sed or awk because not everyone has covered the material (so unfair), and this is intended as an exercise in Bash scripting. If advanced Linux tools are used, the maximum mark will be 12. you comment say not to use awk and sed, can we use bc
