How to count the number of occurrences in a list in Python
In this article you will learn how to count the number of occurrences in a list – that is, the number of times a value is repeated in a list in Python
Hey guys, what’s up? Let’s learn more about Python and lists in today article! 😀
To count elements that are repeated, we will use the count method
On top of the list we are going to check the elements
Let’s see a practical example:
list = [1, 2, 3, 1, 4, 5, 6, 1, 7, 8] ocurrences = list.count(1) print(ocurrences)
Here we are checking in the list variable, how many times the number 1 is repeated, by the count method
When using print in the repetitions variable we have the number 3 being displayed
This is the number of 1s in the list
So it is with the count method that we have the possibility to see how many times an element is repeated in a list in Python
There are certainly other approaches, but count is the most practical and simple of all.
In this article we learned how to count the number of occurrences in a list in Python language
To count repeated elements, we use the count method in the list, passing as a parameter the element that we want to count the repetitions
We can display this number of repetitions using the print method
