I have the following sentences:

  1. Simulations show cost reductions of between 4% and/to 15% and
    reductions of between 2% and/to 4% regarding the demand.
  2. The method leads to improvements of between 15% and/to 54%

I always want to specify a range. Would you rather use 'and' or 'to' in these 3 examples?

I'd appreciate every comment.

    Do the examples in a dictionary help? "A man aged between 18 and 30" uses and and is the same construction as your sentence.

    It's from A to B and between A and B. The from...to and between ...and frames are important. Commented Oct 28, 2020 at 15:18
