escapes.py challenge task 2

Not sure exactly what I'm missing here but I feel like I'm close. The other example I found didn't help me out too much.

escapes.py
import re

def first_number(string):
    number = re.search(r'\d', string)
    return number

def numbers(count_as_int, string_1):
    numeros = re.search(r'\d' * 5, string_1)
    return numeros

Yes, you are very close indeed. But the instructions say to search for "exactly count numbers" (using the supplied argument) and not always 5.
