Trying to get Anaconda3 running on Mac

I am trying to get Anaconda3 for Python 3.4 running on my Mac. (OSX 10.9.5) In the instructions from the Continuum Analytics after the installation this is what needs to be done.

I installed it on the home folder per instructions on this page:
http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/install.html#mac-install

Then after the installation this is what needs to be done.
COMMAND-LINE INSTALLS:
After downloading the installer, in the shell execute:

bash Anaconda3-2.1.0-MacOSX-x86_64.sh
Note that you should type "bash", regardless of whether or not you are actually using the bash shell.

See -> for more info. http://continuum.io/downloads#py34

What I get back in my terminal after is this:

bash: Anaconda3-2.1.0-MacOSX-x86_64.sh: No such file or directory

What went wrong? I have sent an email to Continuum Analytics and I'm waiting for their reply.
Thanks for any help.

Answer

You need to cd to the directory where the installer is first, typically cd ~/Downloads.
