I am newbee and I was trying some codes in python, I wrote a code in python to count how many times a word appears in a string  :

string = "Not Your buisness surely not your"

CountString = string.count("buisness" 0, 6)
print("CountString")

It shows an error message:

File "main.py", line 3
    CountString = string.count("buisness" 0, 6)
                                          ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

why am I getting this type of error message and how can I check how many times a word appears in a string?

To count how many times a word appears in string  you used 

count()

method .That was right but you should have write your code:

string = "Not Your buisness surely not your"


print(string.count("Not", 0, 20))
print(string.count("Your", 0, 20))
print(string.count("buisness", 0, 20))
print(string.count("surely", 0, 20))
print(string.count("not", 0, 20))
print(string.count("your", 0, 20))

In this format. You should get an output like:

1
1
1
0
0
0

Happy Coding.
