'apt-get' is one word with a dash in the middle, not two words. So you
sudo apt-get install rar
Error messages are the key to the problem. In this case you should have
sudo: apt: command not found
which tells you that there's no program called "apt".
In future, if you're having a problem and you have an error message, it's
helpful to post it.
