How to convert a WAV file to an MP3 with Audacity

I work with a lot of media files, video and audio and a large part of the challenge when working with many media types is that formats are often incompatible. This is a quick tutorial on how to convert files with a .wav extension to a .mp3 file using the free open source audio editor Audacity. It includes instructions on how to install the LAME MP3 encoder required by Audacity to process the MP3 files.
