Basics of AppleScript


Script [5.6.1]:

set input to "15" as number
set numToString to 15 as string

Explanation: input variable was string but as we specified it to be number, it becomes of type number and stores 15. numToString was number type but as we specified string, it stores “15”. This is coercion.
