You can extract the number from a string using Regex, here is the regex that should work

Method first:

var NumberFromString= string.Join(string.Empty, Regex.Matches(StringWithNumber, @"\d+").OfType<Match>().Select(m => m.Value));

Input: " 121 testing"

Output: "121"

Second Method:

string StringWithNumbers= "121 - Testing";

var data = Regex.Match(StringWithNumbers, @"\d+").Value;


Third method:

Now it may be possible that your string may have a number like this "121/1 Testing answer", which may contain special characters also, so in that case, you would need a regex like below to remove special characters (-,/)

   Regex rgx = new Regex("[^0-9-/]");
   var Number = rgx.Replace("121/1 Testing String", "");  //121/1
   var remainingString = Model.Street.Replace(Number, "");   

In this way, you can do this using Regex and change it according to your need.
