Tufte-LaTeX 3.5 (compiling with PDFTexify)

I need to have my citations in the numbered format e.g. [1], [2], etc.

I tried adding the following to the preamble

\usepackage[numbers]{natbib} but get an error as long as [numbers] is present

Please advise

Welcome to TeX.SX!. A tip: If you put inline code between backticks '`', it will be highlighted a such: take a peek here. – Count Zero Feb 13 '13 at 14:54

I'm also using tufte-handout class quit often. With biblatex there's no problem using numbered citations by choosing any of the numbered citation styles offered or designing one for yourself. For example, my preamble line is: \usepackage[style=nature,natbib=true,backend=biber]{biblatex}

And it works just fine.
