I have 3 figures to demonstrate some process. Which one should be used?

The process is shown in Figure 1 to Figure 3.

or

The process is shown in from Figure 1 to Figure 3.

I feel that the first one is more natural. Or should we use

The process is shown in Figures 1 to 3.

Edit

What if the # of figures is more than 10? Is there any succinct representation?

  • @HotLicks Is "in figures 1 - 3" appropriate? – Matteo Apr 18 at 11:52
  • Certainly, except possibly in stuffily formal publications. – Hot Licks Apr 18 at 12:10

How about: The above process is shown/ is demonstrated in the figures: 1, 2, 3

edit

The above process is shown from the figure 1 to figure 20 or *from figure 1-20

  • What if there are many figures (say 20)? Is there any succinct representation? – Matteo Apr 18 at 11:56
