 # Python Tuple count()

In this tutorial, you will learn about the Python Tuple count() method with the help of examples.

The `count()` method returns the number of times the specified element appears in the tuple.

### Example

``````# tuple of vowels
vowels = ('a', 'e', 'i', 'o', 'i', 'u')

# counts the number of i's in the tuple
count = vowels.count('i')

print(count)

# Output: 2``````

## count() Syntax

The syntax of the `count()` method is:

``vowels.count('i')``

Here, vowels is the tuple and 'i' is an element to count.

## count() Parameter

The `count()` method takes a single parameter:

• 'i' - an element to count in the tuple

## count() Return Value

The `count()` method returns:

• a number of times the given element `i` is present in the tuple

## Example 1: Python Tuple count()

``````# tuple of numbers
numbers = (1, 3, 4, 1, 6 ,1 )

# counts the number of 1's in the tuple
count = numbers.count(1)

print('The count of 1 is:', count)

# counts the number of 7's in the tuple
count = numbers.count(7)

print('The count of 7 is:', count)``````

Output

```The count of 1 is: 3
The count of 7 is: 0```

In the above example, we have used the `count()` method to count the number of times the elements 1 and 7 appear in the tuple.

Here, the tuple numbers tuple `(1,3,4,1,6,1)` contains three 1's and doesn't contain the number 7. Hence, its count in the tuple is 3 and 0 respectively.

## Example 2: count() to Count List and Tuple Elements Inside Tuple

``````# tuple containing list and tuples
random = ('a', ('a', 'b'), ('a', 'b'), [3, 4])

# count element ('a', 'b')
count = random.count(('a', 'b'))

print("The count of tuple ('a', 'b') is:", count)

# count element [3, 4]
count = random.count([3, 4])

print("The count of list [3, 4] is:", count)``````

Output

```The count of tuple ('a', 'b') is: 2
The count of list [3, 4] is: 1```

In the above example, we have used the `count()` method to count the number of lists and tuples inside the tuple random.

The tuple `('a', 'b')` appears twice and the list `[3, 4]` appears once. Hence, its count in the tuple is 2 and 1 respectively.
