Encapsulate: in a function named count_letters, and generalize it so that it accepts the string and the letter as arguments.

Now rewrite the count_letters function so that instead of traversing the string, it repeatedly calls find (the version from Optional parameters), with the optional third parameter to locate new occurences of the letter being counted.

ceil function finds the lowest integeral value greater than or equal to x.

deepcopy would have come handy in exercises you didn't have to solve regarding object reference, thus no answer is excpected here.
