    You'd probably want your script to wrap around useradd and userdel. Then if creation or deletion is successful it can echo the action, user, and date-time to a custom log file in /var/log/

    What have you tried so far?

    I would start with not actually creating or deleting users then but instead just making a script that prints out (using echo) the line you think you would use. You'll want to get input from the user and use that in a variable:
