No it isn't my homework. I am trying to take free ram in centOS.

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 248 227 20 0 34 100
-/+ buffers/cache: 93 155
Swap: 2000 105 1895

I want to take 3rd and 7th column in 2nd line. I am taking but for earch line not 2nd Smilie...

free -m | awk '{print $3 - $7}' | awk '{print "Free Ram: " $1}'

Is this what you're looking for?

awk 'NR==2{print "Free ram: ", $2, $7}'

Thank you Franklin52 and brainyoung.

awk 'NR==2{print "Free ram: ", $2, $7}'

with this I solved my problem.
