Hi

There's the issue:

~~~ruby
"String".to_i  => 0  
~~~

This must be NIL or at least error, but no 0, because the string is not a number, also:

~~~ruby
"10String".to_i => 10 
~~~

Is not 10, because "10String" is not a number, maybe is necessary a new method to get a number from any string, because to_i is to convert into a Integer and that should return an error.

Greetings everyone
