I have installed the tezos-client but don't know how to check the balance for an address. Can anyone help me?

You can get the balance for an address by running tezos-client get balance for <address>. Remember to be connected to a node first. You can do that by following this tutorial: https://assets.tqtezos.com/docs/setup/1-tezos-client/

If the balance is zero or unexpected, your connected node might be out of sync. You can check that by running tezos-client get timestamp.
