Add a break. Something like:
If (is.character(x)) break

If you have nested loops then a similar statement is needed for each level. "break" only exits the innermost loop.

Trying to figure out how to create a simple program that will as the user from a value input and simply add 5 units to that value then ask the user for another value  and add 45 units to it  and on and on. Then how does one exit the loop of program?

# Create a function called `add_five`

add_five <- function(x) {

  # Add 5 to the input value

  x + 5


readline(prompt = "Enter a number: ")
