Macbook numlock

I used search to see if this has been solved here before but apparently not. I have been looking like crazy on google but still nothing either.

Here’s the deal: i bought an external cheap numpad for my late 2008 macbook pro, because it’s indispensable for working with blender. Well, turns out the Num Lock key is dead, apparently. I’m at a certain point in a tutorial where it asks to make sure that numlock is off, and i jus want to do so but i have found absolutely no way to turn numlock on. Anybody has been in my situation or have any suggestions? I’d appreciqte that a lot, thanks

Nevermind, Num Lock is technically always on on a Mac. Some admin please delete this thread, it’s not necessary anymore
