    Please comply with the homework guidelines.

    By the way, I think that your statement is ambiguous: are you trying to count how many times 'a' appears, or are you trying to find a string of 'a's of some given length?

    Check this program

    Code:
    #include<iostream.h>
    void main()
    {
    int count=0;
    char name[15];
    cout<<"Enter name:";
    cin>>name;
    for(int i=0;name[i]!="\0";i++)
    {
    if((name[i]==65)||(name[i]==91))
    {
    cout++;
    }
    }
    cout<<"Number of times a appear="<<count";
    }

    A quick check reveals that it is quite bad:
    • The code lacks proper indentation.
    • <iostream.h> should be replaced by <iostream>
    • void main should be replaced by int main
    • The names cout and cin are not qualified, yet there is no relevant using declarations or directive.
    • The reading of input is susceptible to buffer overflow.
    • name[i]!="\0" attempts to compare a char with a const char[2].
    • 65 and 91 are magic numbers.
    • cout++; is a true WTF, though excusable since cout and count are very close in edit distance.
