install sklearn for python3

I ran a python3 program and got error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in
from sklearn.metrics.pairwise import pairwise_distances
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘sklearn’

It clearly says sklearn module is not available and second point to consider is I am using python3 and I have pyhton2 as well on my devbox.

To sort it out, I simply installed this module for python3 and to install sklearn for python3 off-course I need to use pip3 as default pip belongs to python2

pip3 install sklearn
