Hi Adhya, 

The only peut I could find was-

peut-être maybe/perhaps

If you click on the French word it will give you the translation in yellow.

In the future, can you give the whole sentence and not just a single word as the context is everything in language.

Bonne Continuation!

peut is a conjugation for the verb pouvoir. 

Pouvoir = to be able to/ can

Thus,  (il/elle) peut = (he/she) can

conjugation table for 'pouvoir', in present tense =
