# Challenge

Given an array in any suitable format, create a frequency table for it. i.e: Pair each unique element with the number of times it appears in the array.

You can return the frequency table as a list of pairs, hashmap/dictionary, output the pairs directly, etc.

# Tests

{ 1 1 2 3 5 6 6 }           -> { { 1 2 } { 2 1 } { 3 1 } { 5 1 } { 6 2 } }
{ }                         -> { }
{ 1 6 7 1 2 6 6 1 53 4 10 } -> { { 1 3 } { 2 1 } { 4 1 } { 53 1 } { 6 3 } { 7 1 } { 10 1 } }

Try it online!

Assumptions:

• Passing the array size to a function can be used as a means to deal with empty arrays (not supported in C).
• A table of integers can be regarded as a hashtable with an integer value as hash key and the value's frequency as data. Or if you will: a key-value pair.
• Maximum integer value 9999.
• The global variable t may have its contents printed outside the function.
