```Hi sergio!

Maybe an example could help to know what you want but: a matrix is a list of list so if
you specify the level in which you are seeking a number (or anything else...) you have
the result:

Count[{{a, a, b}, {b, a, a}, {a, b, a}}, b, 2] returns 3 (because 3 'b' appear )

Count[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {3, 3, 3}}, 3, 2] returns 4 (there are four 3 in level2 in
this matrix)

Count[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {3, 3, 3}}, 3] returns 0 (there are no 3 in level1 in this
matrix)

Count[{{1, 2, {3, 2, 1}}, {4, 5, 6}, {3, {3}, 3}}, 3, 2] returns 2 (there are two 3 in
level2 in this matrix)

Count[{{1, 2, {3, 2, 1}}, {4, 5, 6}, {3, {3}, 3}}, 3] returns 0 (there are no 3 in level1
in this matrix)

Count[{{1, 2, {3, 2, 1}}, {4, 5, 3}, {3, {3}, 3}}, 3, Infinity] returns 5 (there are five
3 in all levels in this matrix)

You can find other examples on web

I hope helping you!
Bye
