What is pip
pip is a package management system for Python that is used to install and manage software packages written in Python. It is a command-line tool that allows users to easily download, install, and manage Python packages from the command line.
Some of the key features of

Install packages from the Python Package Index (PyPI) and other indexes
Install packages from local wheels or source archives
Install multiple packages at once
Manage multiple Python versions and environments on the same system

pip is installed, you can use it to install and manage Python packages on your system.
