COUNT NUMBER by Range with COUNTIFS


For Example, you have a data of list in both A2:A6 and B2:B6 and you wish to count the number of sales between the range of 10 to 20, and you can do the following steps:

#1 select Cell D1

#2 enter the following formula based on the COUNTIFS function:

=COUNTIFS(B2:B6,”>=10”,B2:B6,”<=20”)

Then you need to press Enter key to apply this formula. And it will count the cells in range B2:B6 with values between 10 and 20. And the operator “>=” means that “greater than or equal to” and “<=” means that “less than or equal to”.

The formula returns the value 3 in Cell D1. And it means that there are three values between 10 and 20 in your given range B2:B6.

If you want to count the number of value between the range of 20 to 30, and you can use the following formula based on the COUNTIFS function:

=COUNTIFS(B2:B6,”>=20″,B2:B6,”<=30″)

This formula is the same as in the previous example. And you just only need to change the lowest value is 20, and the highest value is 30. Then this formula will count the cells in range B2:B6 with values between 20 and 30.
