Send output of command to screen and to multiple files

Hi there,

I'm a newbie to Unix (taking a course in it right now) and I don't know how to do the following in bash:

I need to write a command to display information about the used and free space on the file system, showing only local file systems, and then send the output of the command to the screen and to three files named status1, status2, and status3. Do this all in one command line.

so far I have

free -mt > status1>status2 > status3

and that put what I wanted in the 3 files...but it doesn't output that info to the screen.....

Thanks in advance for any help you have
