Needs more space on the / filesystem

I am trying to install a program (Microsoft Teams for Linux) and get the following error message:

Unable to install teams
Error running transaction: installing package
teams- needs 36MB more space on the / filesystem

I am brand new to Linux so if anyone can walk me through in a very basic way how to expand space on the file system to allow me to install the program I would be grateful.

First step is to see how much space you have. Go to System Monitor and click the File Systems tab. Tell us how much is available for Directory / and Directory /home.

And in addition tell us what filesystem is in use.

Three very useful commands (to be entered in Gnome Terminal) are:

df -h


fdisk -l
