What am I missing, search with a regular expression, the first number in the string and return the match object.
This works in my workspace, but I must be doing something wrong for their listed goal. Can anyone explain where I went wrong and what the code should read? Thanks for your help.
import re def first_number(string): return(re.match(r'\d',string))

The instructions say "The function should search, with a regular expression, the first number in the string and return the match object."
The word "search" in the instructions is a clue to what "re" method you should use (instead of "match").
