Can I install Elementary OS on my Raspberry Pi 3 model B?

I want to run it for MySQL and coding, thanks.

Nope, there is no current build of the operating system for ARM processors, though theoretically someone could build one. However, you can download ARM and Raspberry Pi-compatible builds of Ubuntu and Debian (Raspbian), the latter being the most popular. (elementary OS is based on Ubuntu, which is based on Debian.) You can track the wishlist request for an ARM version of elementary OS here.
