There is a problem here.  What you are assigning to the variable 'numbers' is not the data stored in the file, but the name of the file.
If your file name is pizza, then the variable 'numbers' holds the character string 'pizza' which you are then performing your analysis on.  You need to address the variables stored in the data file, not the name of the file.
