Since this looks a lot like homework what have you tried so far?

If you get errors or unexpected output we are very willing to help with addressing issues but doing someone else's homework without evidence of at least trying ...

 

Show code and any errors from the log by copy and paste into a code box opened using the forum {I} menu icon.

 

You are being asked to summarize data. Try searching the SAS online help for "summary" and see if anything pop up.
