I couldn't even formulate a correct title for this question. I'm having a problem with a word/verb choice to describe some values that "pass(?)" A certain threshold. For example consider
1 3 |5| 7 8
The threshold is 5, but what I got is 3, which couldn't pass the 5.
How would I say it?
That value 3 cannot pass/get over/bypass/pass through the 5.
The word 'pass' sounds natural to my ears but I know there are some alternatives. Or is it rather plainly 'pass'?
