String Manipulation in Python

## Counting

Let's consider some other methods that can be applied to strings. One of them can help us count the number of appearances of some symbol/substring within a string.

To count the number of symbol/substring in string use `.count(symbol/substring)` method. For example,

Note

This method is case-sensitive to symbols. For the example above, `string.count('m')` will return 0, while `string.count('M')` will return 1.

You are given `string` "Introduction to Python". You need to calculate the number of symbols `'o'` and `'t'` in this string.
