class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {
        List<int> list = new List<int>();
        list.AddRange(new int[] { 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 4, 5, 1, 7, 1, 8, 1});
        Console.WriteLine("1 occurs {0} times.", CountOccurenceOfValue(list, 1));
        Console.WriteLine("1 occurs {0} times.", CountOccurenceOfValue2(list, 1));
    }
 
    static int CountOccurenceOfValue(List<int> list, int valueToFind)
    {
        return ((from temp in list where temp.Equals(valueToFind) select temp).Count());
    }
 
    static int CountOccurenceOfValue2(List<int> list, int valueToFind)
    {
        int count = list.Where(temp => temp.Equals(valueToFind))
                    .Select(temp => temp)
                    .Count();
        return count;
    }
}
 

Hope this will help Smile | :)
