# How Do I Use The Count, Countif, And Countifs Functions To Count Cells Based On Certain Criteria?

The COUNT, COUNTIF, and COUNTIFS functions in Google Sheets allow you to count cells based on certain criteria. These functions can be useful for analyzing data and finding trends in your data set.

Here’s how to use each function:

COUNT:

The COUNT function counts the number of cells in a range that contain a number.

Syntax: =COUNT(range)

Example: =COUNT(A1:A10)

This formula counts the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain a number.

COUNTIF:

The COUNTIF function counts the number of cells in a range that meet a specified criteria.

Syntax: =COUNTIF(range, criteria)

Example: =COUNTIF(A1:A10, “>5”)

This formula counts the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain a value greater than 5.

COUNTIFS:

The COUNTIFS function counts the number of cells in a range that meet multiple criteria.

Syntax: =COUNTIFS(range1, criteria1, [range2, criteria2], …)

Example: =COUNTIFS(A1:A10, “>5”, B1:B10, “apple”)

This formula counts the number of cells in the range A1:A10 that contain a value greater than 5 and the number of cells in the range B1:B10 that contain the value “apple”.
