I know that normally 'between' is used with 'and'. Howvever, I am not sure if this is still correct, if I want to specify a ranges. Here is an example:

"Method B leads to improvements of between 0.8% to 13.3% regarding the costs."

Is the 'to' correct here? When I use 'and' I somehow have the impression that the reader might think that this is not a range but two discrete numbers (so either 0.8% or 13.3%). I'd appreciate every comment.

    No, they should not think that. It's from 1 to 10 or between 1 and 10. Apr 19, 2020 at 7:40
  • Thanks Kate Buting for your answer. So you would say that 'to' is wrong in this context, right and you advice me to use 'and'?
