I won't code it for you (partly because the problem is underspecified), but as 
a general suggestion, try to loop through the various file names. Inside the 
loop, increment a counter. Also within the loop, test the value of the 
counter against the drop count (using a modulo operator), and if appropriate, 
call os.rename(). I think this is less than 10 lines of code.
