Installing missing dependencies redhat / fedora / centos

When you try to install a rpm on the fedora/centos. It sometimes says
missing dependencies. Earlier I used to try "Yum install
<dependencyname>" which most of the time does not used to work.
Today I discovered that it is not because they are not available but
they are provided as a bundle with some other package. Hence the
correct way is to do "yum provides <dependencyname>" which would then
list the actual package that you need to install to get this

Edit: Even simpler is to do "yum localinstall  " the dependencies are auto installed by yum
