you can just do a pivot table in excel and it will give you the desired output:

in excel go to data
select pivot table and pivot chart wizard
click next
select the table range
click next
click layout
select the "Type" field in row and count in the data (this should now show Sum of count).
click ok
and then finish

Put A in Cell A10, B in A11 and C in A12, then put the below formula in cell B10 and copy down to row 11 and 12

=SUMIF(\$A\$2:\$A\$8,A10,\$B\$2:\$B\$8)

It assumes that your data is in cells A2:B8 (headers in row 1)

then this SUMIF formula could be used for this. see attached sample (I left pivot as it was and added also columns (I, J, K, L) with formula)
