Program or Solution


num = int(input("Enter the number"))

digit = int(input("Enter a Digit"))

count = 0

n = num

while n != 0:

    rem = n % 10

    if rem == digit:


    n = n // 10

print("{} occured {} times in {}".format(digit,count,num))

Program Explanation

initialize count is equal to 0

calculate the remainder of a number by doing number % 10

check remainder is equal to digit, if it is equal increment the count by 1 , else divide number by the 10 and repeat the above steps till number becomes zero.

print the count.
