I am trying to count a source sheet if it's and new request and the Business area is HR

I have tried the following

=COUNTIF({Internal Comms Intake Range 2}, "New Request",({Internal Comms Intake Range 3},CONTAINS("HR",@cell))

Came back Unparseable

=COUNTIF({Internal Comms Intake Range 2}, "New Request", AND({Internal Comms Intake Range 3}, "HR"))

Came back Incorrect Argument Set

    2023 update: I'm no longer working on Smartsheet stuff. I started working at Microsoft in 2022, plus I have 1-year-old twins at home and frankly, I don't have enough time to do Smartsheet anymore. It's been real, Smartsheeters!
