(Excel examples for Beginners)

In this end-to-end excel example, you will learn – How to Count cells less than something in Excel.

Generic formula

`=COUNTIF(rng,"<X")`

Explanation

To count the number of cells that contain values less than a particular number, you can use the COUNTIF function. In the generic form of the formula (above) rng represents a range of cells that contain numbers, and X represents the threshold below which you want to count. In the example shown, G5 contains this formula:

`=COUNTIF(C5:C11,"<80")`

How this formula works

COUNTIF counts the number of cells in the range that contain numeric values less than X and returns the result as a number.

If you want to count cells that are “less than or equal to 80”, use:

`=COUNTIF(C5:C11,"<=80")`

If you want to use a value in another cell as part of the criteria, use the ampersand (&) character to concatenate like this:

`=COUNTIF(rng,"<"&A1)`

If the value in cell A1 is 100, the criteria will be “<100” after concatenation:

`=COUNTIF(rng,"<100")`
