For this one, the command is run outside of Python - in other words, 
this is a shell command, not a Python command.  Quit Python and try again.

Extra reading:

There are some nuances.  If you are on a Linux system, Python is a 
system program and you don't want to try to install into system 
locations (you'll run into permission problems anyway), so trying a user 
install is useful.  So:

pip install --user numpy

In fact, if you're on a Linux system you *may* prefer to install the 
packaged versions - use the appropriate package manager commands.

The numpy site has lots more thoughts on installing - I believe they 
suggest using the conda installation system.
