print(is_num('26587'))
print(is_num('4.2365'))
print(is_num('-12547'))
print(is_num('00'))
print(is_num('A001'))
print(is_num('001'))
print("\nPrint checking numbers:")
is_num1 = lambda r: is_num(r[1:]) if r[0]=='-' else is_num(r)
print(is_num1('-16.4'))
print(is_num1('-24587.11'))

Sample Output:

True
True
