In Python, isnumeric() is a built-in method used for string handling. The issnumeric() methods returns “True” if all characters in the string are numeric characters, Otherwise, It returns “False”.
This function is used to check if the argument contains all numeric characters such as : integers, fractions, subscript, superscript, roman numerals etc.(all written in unicode)
string.isnumeric() Parameters: isnumeric() does not take any parameters Returns : 1.True- If all characters in the string are numeric characters. 2.False- If the string contains 1 or more non-numeric characters.
Input : string = '1889345' Output : True Input : string = '\u00BD' Output : True Input : string = '123ayu456' Output : False
Errors and Exceptions
- It does not contain any arguments, therefore, it returns an error if a parameter is passed.
- Whitespaces are not considered to be numeric, therefore, it returns “False”
- Subscript, Superscript, Fractions, Roman numerals (all written in unicode)are all considered to be numeric, Therefore, it returns “True”
Application : Given a string in python, count number of numeric characters in the string and remove them from the string and print the string.
Input : string = '123geeks456for789geeks' Output : 9 geeksforgeeks Input : string = '123ayu456' Output : 6 aye
1. Initialise an empty newstring and variable count to 0.
1. Traverse the given string character by character upto its length, check if character is a numeric character.
2. If it is a numeric character, increment the counter by 1 and do not add it to the new string, else traverse to the next character and keep adding the characters to the new string if not numeric.
3. Print the value of the counter and the newstring.
