Mensagem:  Yes.  Very clever of you to see that.
Just remember that you can say a girl has a nice figure, but not a nice number.  And you can ask a girl for her number, but not her figure.  O que falo e certo, mas estou brincando com voce.  Nao deve ser chato estudar ingles, certo?

"To crunch the numbers" is to carefully consider the expenses, the income, etc. of a potential project.  A statistical analysis.  Also heard is "number crunching".
