countif with > or < signs



I would like to count the number of ">3 hours saved" using the countif function. However, it is not working.

I am writing the formula as follows: =countif(range, ">3 hours saved")

the same issue with "<1 hour saved". Apparently adding the < or > signs is affecting the formula.

Any suggestions please? I should mention I tried adding { } or [ ] around "[>3 hours saved]" still did not work.

Thank you in advance
