=COUNTIF(A2:A8,"RED") : Counts the number of cells in the range A2 to A8 that has text "RED", returns 2 as a result.
=COUNTIF(B3:B8, ">8") : Counts the number of cells in the range B3 to B8 containing number of objects greater than '8', returns 3 as a result.
=COUNTIF(A3:A7,A4) : Counts the number of cells in the range A3 to A7, that has text similar to A4, returns 1 as a result.
=COUNTIF(B2:B6, "<>"&B4) : Counts the number of cells in the range B2 to B6 containing number of objects that are not equal to '20', returns 4 as a result.
=COUNTIF(B2:B8,">4") - COUNTIF(B2:B8,">20") : Returns the difference in number of cells in the range B2 to B8 with number>4 and number>20, returns 4 as a result.
