# Function to count tuple elements

## Question

Suppose you are given a tuple containing ints and strings. Write a Python function to return the # of times a given element, `n`

, appears in the tuple.

For example, given the tuple below, where `n=3`

, your function should return `4`

, since 3 appears 4 times in the tuple.

```
input:
n = 3
my_tuple = 2, 'my_string', 4, 3, 3, 3, 2, 3
output:
4
```
