    Yes, have an array that would denote how many of each item you've found. Since you are only classifying numbers [0-9] and all others as it's own category, you'd have 11 categories.

    Then, you can iterate through each character in the string and determine which category to increase the count for (either using if/else statements or by taking advantage of the underlying unicode representation)
