count days of week

Occasional Visitor

Hello - first-time poster here

I would like to count the number of Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, etc.  My column is formatted to automatically show the day of the week when I type the date.  So I type 6/26/22 and it displays Sunday, June 26, 2022.  So when I try to use the countif function and Weekday function it is not recognized because the cell contains only numbers 6/26/22, but it displays the day of the week.

=SUMPRODUCT(N(WEEKDAY($C$4:$C$22)=WEEKDAY(E4)))

You can try this formula with the attached example.
