On ne peut pas dire on peut le faire?

Raymond, yes, you can say ‘ on peut le faire ‘ but there is a difference between that and  ‘ on sait le faire ‘. Basically, ‘savoir’  refers mainly to knowledge, ‘pouvoir’ to ability/action.  These are not always the same thing. 

Context and meaning to convey determine the choice.
