I'm new to Terminal and I'm finding trouble navigating around files and folders. When I enter cd /Applications, then ls, Terminal only shows 1 result when entering the ls command. Capo.app is all that shows up.

Why does this happen sometimes?

Are you typing /Applications or Applications? What is the output of pwd? –  Canadian Luke Dec 12 '12 at 4:30
When does it ever not happen? –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 12 '12 at 5:43
I think there are 2 versions of Applications... Now I realise.. –  Josh Dec 14 '12 at 4:11
