I downloaded OS X El Capitan from the app store to create a bootable usb drive and now that I am done, I dont know how to delete it. There is no un-install option in the app store.
How can I delete the downloaded OS X from my macbook?

It's actually very easy....
Type the following command:
rm -rf /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/
This will remove the the install and sub-folders for the El Capitan installer.
Open the Applications Folder by navigating to it or by pressing ShiftCommandA. Select the Install OS X App and Control Click or right click and select Move to Trash
That's it. The installer has been removed!
