As many have mentioned the definition has been given already but I would suggest for help with these sorts of fundamental questions going through something like the BabyPips school as all this jargon and much more is in there and it's free.

Pip is an acronym for 'percentage in point' or 'price interest point.' A pip is the smallest price move that an exchange rate can make based on forex market convention. Most currency pairs are priced out to four decimal places and the pip change is the last (fourth) decimal point. A pip is thus equivalent to 1/100 of 1% or one basis point. For example, the smallest move the USD/CAD currency pair can make is \$0.0001 or one basis point. I believe that it's very important to understand all the terms in trading because it clarifies you many aspects in this activity, even the most complicated ones.

Pips are units of measurement which show the change in value between the two currencies. A pip usually represents a one digit movement in the fourth decimal place of a currency pair.

For example, if the Euro to US Dollar moves from 1.1130 to 1.1131, this 0.0001 rise is equal 1131-1130, which is equal to 1 pip.

The forex pip refers to the movement of price from one point to another. If the price of eurusd moves up to 1.1610 then eurusd has moved three pips upwards, that's how pip works, and don't forget that we have ask and bit price, if the current price of eurusd is 1.1607 then the bid price will be 1. 16010.

Pip measures the amount of change in exchange rate of a currency pair and is calculated using the last decimal point. Knowing the pip value of a currency pair gives a trader a more precise assessment of how many pips of risks a trader is taking.

I see that there are already several explanations with the answer to your question, but I wanted to point out that the Babypips website would probably help you out. They have a lot of content that focuses on beginners. I also was confused about pips at first but the site explains things in a way that is easy to follow.

A pip is defined as the small price movement in the quote price of a currency pair. Usually, pip is the fourth number (0.0001) after the decimal point. But there are exceptions for pairs with JPY (0.01) as one of the currencies.

In order to make profitable trades, traders have to catch pips. They are referred to as the minimal changes in the price of a currency pair. For instance, Say EUR/USD was quoted at 1.7581 when you bought this pair. After a while, due to market’s volatility, its value changed to 1.782. So if you look closely at the price, the last digit has increased by 1. That’s what is called a pip. Generally, a pip is the fourth value after the decimal (0.0001). But there are exceptions; all pairs formed with the Japanese Yen follow 0.01.
