• Last Updated : 24 Oct, 2019

In this article, we will see how to get the number of keys with some given value N in a given dictionary. There are multiple methods to do this task. Let’s see them with help of examples.

Simple method –

 `# Python3 code to Get the number of keys``# with given value N in dictionary`` ` `# Initialize dictionary ``test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: ``1``, ``'is'` `: ``2``, ``'best'` `: ``3``, ``'for'` `: ``2``, ``'CS'` `: ``2``} `` ` ` ` `# printing original dictionary ``print``(``"The original dictionary : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) `` ` `# Initialize value ``N ``=` `2`` ` `# Using loop ``# Selective key values in dictionary ``res ``=` `0``for` `key ``in` `test_dict: ``    ``if` `test_dict[key] ``=``=` `N: ``        ``res ``=` `res ``+` `1``     ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Frequency of N is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output:

```The original dictionary : {'CS': 2, 'for': 2, 'is': 2, 'gfg': 1, 'best': 3}
Frequency of N is : 3
```

Method #2: Using sum() + values()

 `# Python3 code to Get the number of keys``# with given value N in dictionary``# Using sum() + values() `` ` `# Initialize dictionary ``test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: ``1``, ``'is'` `: ``2``, ``'best'` `: ``3``, ``'for'` `: ``2``, ``'CS'` `: ``2``} `` ` `# printing original dictionary ``print``(``"The original dictionary : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) `` ` `# Initialize value ``N ``=` `2`` ` `# Using sum() + values() ``# Selective key values in dictionary``res ``=` `sum``(x ``=``=` `N ``for` `x ``in` `test_dict.values()) ``     ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Frequency of K is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output:

```The original dictionary : {'is': 2, 'for': 2, 'gfg': 1, 'best': 3, 'CS': 2}
Frequency of K is : 3
```
