answer. 6+5+8=19...
I am using col a as a ref table.

Also the count would be 3 records. ..

=SUMIF(A1:A7,"<=3",B1:B7)

Open in new window

ok here it is you should use SUMIFS

for >=1 and <=3 this is the formula
=SUMIFS(B2:B8,A2:A8,">=1",A2:A8,"<=3")

for<4 this is the formula
=SUMIFS(B2:B8,A2:A8,"<4")

and you can see it in the attached file.

Well read it again and although you said SUM of values for <4 but then you give the result of 3 then it is no more a SUMIFS but a COUNT

so for <4
=COUNTIFS(A1:A7,"<=3")

You can use them without the S at the end as well but I prefer these as they open the door for multiple criteria if and when needed.
