    So you need two changes. Firstly, somewhere you want to change the value of 'J' .
    Secondly, you need to put your cout<< statement somewhere that it only prints once.

    Have a look at the structure of the program, based on what you know about your output..

       //Everything up here is executed once
    while (position != string::npos)
            //Everything between these curly braces is executed per each occurrance of "John"
    	position = quote.find("John", position +1);
    	cout << "The number of times John was used is: " << j;
       //Everything down here is executed once
