Code Challengue: Regular Expressions

I am not passing the challenge, I tested my code on my console and if it works. I don't understand the question :/

escapes.py
import re

def first_number(a):
  b = re.search(r'\d', a)
  return b

def numbers(integer, string):
  c = re.match(r'\d'*integer, string)
  return c

You'll want re.search for the second function as well. The mention of returning a match most likely meant the MatchObject, since re.match only checks the beginning of a string.
