Difference between text and number

Number

Something, you can compare. Salary: 1 000 000 > 1 000
You can divide: Pieces 20, shared by 5 people = 4

Not a number

Zip code. 987998. It is an identifier. Not a number. You don't care, which one is bigger. You will never divide it.

Cell phone number 0420 738 246 506

Account number. This is not a number.

Id card number. Pin. These are not numbers. There are identifiers containing only numbers. However you don't care about a value. So it is not a number.

If 0124 is not the same as 124, it is not a number.
