I need help creating a formula to count values in a table. This is what I have:

Pages   Pages Sent
3          3
4          10
5           5
2           12
6            6

I need to count the rows that have the same value in both columns and another count where the second value is bigger than the first one:
Same Amount of Pages: 3
Sent Duplicate Pages: 2

Thanks....

You can use array functions to calculate these values.  Press [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Enter] to complete the entry.

Assuming your example values are in columns A & B, then

For Same Amount:
{=SUM(IF((A2:A6)=(B2:B6),1,0))}

For Duplicate Pages:
{=SUM(IF((A2:A6)<(B2:B6),1,0))}

You could also do both with a non-array SUMPRODUCT as you suggest, e.g. for the first

=SUMPRODUCT((A2:A6=B2:B6)+0)
