Try

// CountOfValuesSmallerThanThreshold ( listOfValues ; thresholdValue )

Let ( [
~check = GetValue ( listOfValues ; 1 ) ;
~found = Case ( IsEmpty ( ~check ) ; 0 ; ~check < thresholdValue ) ;
~rest = RightValues ( listOfValues ; ValueCount ( listOfValues ) - 1 )
] ;
$count + ~found +
Case (
not IsEmpty ( ~rest ) ;
CountOfValuesSmallerThanThreshold ( ~rest ; thresholdValue ) ;
Let ( [ a = $count ; $count = "" ] ; a )
)
