    people treated using a pad soaked in Solution A

    Is the following right? For example, can I use "treated" after "people" Can I say "the pain level of => 5" after "scored"?

    There are more people treated using a pad soaked in Solution A who said that the pain was very tolerable
    than people treated using a pad soaked in Solution A who said that the pain was not tolerable. There are more people treated using a pad soaked in Solution A who scored the pain level of => 5 on the numerical pain scalethan people treated using a pad soaked in Solution A who scored the pain level of < 5 on the numerical pain scale.

    It's too verbose to be easily understood. Try something like this:

    More people treated using a pad soaked in solution A said the pain was "very tolerable" than "not tolerable".... etc.

    "Greater than or equal to" is symbolized as "x>=5." Not "x=>5."

    Or start with "Of people treated with solution A, ..." And then don't mention Solution A again.
