There is a specific forum for 'emergency' or quick requests.

What have you tried?

Start with (always) looking at the man pages.

man head
man tail
man split

By your luck, all the three man pages are very small (single page), and you can understand them very easily.
Please ask back if you have any confusion about understanding.
