# Python List count()

In this tutorial, we will see about Python List‘s count method.Python List count method is used to count a number of instances of the element in the list.

## Python List count example

You can simply use count method to find number of occurrences of element in the list.
Let’s understand this with the help of simple example.

``` list1=[1,2,3,2,3,2,2,3,4,4,1,1,2] print("Count of 1 in the list1:",list1.count(1)) print("Count of 2 in the list1:",list1.count(2)) print("Count of 3 in the list1:",list1.count(3)) print("Count of 4 in the list1:",list1.count(4)) ```

Output:

Count of 1 in the list1: 3
Count of 2 in the list1: 5
Count of 3 in the list1: 3
Count of 4 in the list1: 2

You can also find count of set or tuple too.Let’s see with the help of example.

``` list1=['one',{1,2},'three',{1,2}] print('Count of set {1,2}:',list1.count({1,2})) list2=['one',(3,4),'three',(3,4),(3,4)] print('Count of tuple (3,4) :',list2.count((3,4))) ```

Output:

Count of set {1,2}: 2
Count of tuple (3,4) : 3

That’s all about Python List count method.
