Tally counts occurrences in a list.

First /@ {{1, 0}, {1, 1}, {2, x + x^2 + x^4}, {2,
    1 + x + x^2 + x^4}, {4, x + x^2}, {4, 1 + x + x^2}, {4,
    x + x^4}, {4, 1 + x + x^4}, {4, x^2 + x^4}, {4, 1 + x^2 + x^4}, {4,
     x^3 + x^4}, {4, 1 + x^3 + x^4}, {4, x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4}, {4,
    1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4}, {5, x + x^3}, {5, 1 + x + x^3}, {5,
    x^2 + x^3}, {5, 1 + x^2 + x^3}, {5, x + x^3 + x^4}, {5,
    1 + x + x^3 + x^4}, {5, x^2 + x^3 + x^4}, {5,
    1 + x^2 + x^3 + x^4}, {8, x}, {8, x^2}, {8, x^3}, {8, x^4}, {8,
    1 + x}, {8, 1 + x^2}, {8, 1 + x^3}, {8, x + x^2 + x^3}, {8,
    1 + x + x^2 + x^3}, {8, 1 + x^4}}
Tally[%]

{1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 8, \
8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8}

{{1, 2}, {2, 2}, {4, 10}, {5, 8}, {8, 10}}
