What is the list method that you can use for this?

lists
functions

#1

Define a function called count that has two arguments called sequence and item.

Return the number of times the item occurs in the list.

For example: count([1, 2, 1, 1], 1) should return 3 (because 1 appears 3 times in the list).

There is a list method in Python that you can use for this, but you should do it the long way for practice.
Your function should return an integer.
The item you input may be an integer, string, float, or even another list!
Be careful not to use list as a variable name in your code—it’s a reserved word in Python!

What is the list method that you can use for this? I don’t remember encountering it thus far.

Thanks,

That would be, list.count(object).

Eg.

>>> list("ansndnsnahsndgfndhfndsmsn").count('n')
8
