Unrar for Centos 7

I needed to convert a rar file to a zip file on a CentOS 7 Linux system. But when I tried installing an unrar package with yum, the package manager on the system, I found none was available from any of the software repositories the system was configured to check for packages.

# yum install unrar
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: centos.firehosted.com
 * epel: mirror.us.leaseweb.net
 * extras: centos.aol.com
 * updates: mirror.umd.edu
No package unrar available.
Error: Nothing to do
# yum install rar

Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: centos.firehosted.com
 * epel: mirror.us.leaseweb.net

 * updates: mirror.umd.edu
No package rar available.

I had previously installed support for the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository, but though I thought the unrar package might be found there, it wasn't found. I did find an RPM file for the software, howerver, at RPM CentOS 7 unrar 5.0.12 x86_64 rpm. I downloaded that file with wget and, since yum can be used to install RPM files, installed it with yum.
