Solution of numeric keypad not working on Ubuntu

I have a Microsoft Keyboard and i don’t know what happened all of a sudden numeric keypad wasn’t working so i though there was some issue in my keyboard so i changed the keyboard but i was surprised to see problem was same again this time.

So i searched on Google and found that there was some Keyboard settings in Windows and Ubuntu.

In Ubuntu here it is how can we change it

Go to

1) System
2) Preferences
3) Keyboard (Tab: Mouse Keys)
4) Uncheck (Allow to control pointer using the keyboard).
