It is possible, but how you enable it varies from brand to brand. On mine (toshiba) you press the 'Fn' key together with one of the F keys, and that changes 9 of the letter keys to 0-9 keys. You should see the numbers printed very small in one corner of some letter keys. These are for typing ascii codes.

The tricky bit is knowing how to activate them from letters to numbers.

On some it's CTRL+NumLOCK or SHIFT+NumLOCK or Fn+NumLOCK. That will turn NumLock ON and enable numbers to be typed when you hit the appropriate keys...
