I have found the folder and the two files within it.
I am sure that I am using the correct Linux commands, but I keep getting the message:-
"Invalid Command - Please enter the correct Command".
I have remembered to start each command line with a $.
I have put a single space after each dollar.
My first line is a chmod command.
My second and third commands are both rm commands.
I have remembered to place the name of the subfolder, followed by a slash, before each filename.
What am I doing wrong?
Also, why do the instructions tell us to use chmod a+x for the text file?
A text file cannot be executed.
Making it executable does not help you to delete it.
Would it not be more logical to give everyone write access, i.e. a+w?
Then anyone could delete it.

Sorry - I have just solved it.
Stupid mistake - accidentally typed the wrong extension on one of the files I was removing.
