Hello @sharathnandalike

This is a very good question.

No. If you try to add number (without quotes) like in this syntax stringr::str_replace(rooms, '10 or more', 10), you will get this kind of error:

Error : `replacement` must be a character vector

FYI:

This is not possible in R. A vector is supposed to contain values of the same type.

Best,
John.
