Default Conditional Formatting with COUNTIF

I would like to have cell A11 set to show red via conditional formatting if
the cells F11:J11 and AI11:BF11 have either a number, date or text in them,
but excluding cells that contain X and the total is less than 12.
This is the formulae I have been trying;
=(COUNTIF(F11:J11,""&X)+COUNTIF(AI11:BF11,""&X ))12

Similarly A11 should go yellow if the total is between 12 and 25.

Any suggestions.

Try this:
first condition for red:
=COUNTA(F11:J11,AI11:BF11)-COUNTIF(F11:J11,""&"X")-COUNTIF(AI11:BF11,""&"X")12
second condition for yellow:
=COUNTA(F11:J11,AI11:BF11)-COUNTIF(F11:J11,""&"X")-COUNTIF(AI11:BF11,""&"X")25


Regards,
Stefi

=AND(COUNTIF(F11:J11,"X")+COUNTIF(AI11:BF11,"X ")-COUNTBLANK(F11:J11)-COUNTBLANK(AI11:BF11)=12,
COUNTIF(F11:J11,"X")+COUNTIF(AI11:BF11,"X")-COUNTBLANK(F11:J11)-COUNTBLANK(AI11:BF11)=15)
