The following ranges provide different output when units are abbreviated.

Convert Output
<code>{{convert|3|and(-)|6|ft|abbr=on}} 3 and 6 ft (0.91–1.83 m)
{{convert|3|to(-)|6|ft|abbr=on}} 3 to 6 ft (0.91–1.83 m)
{{convert|3|x|6|ft|abbr=on}} 3 ft × 6 ft (0.91 m × 1.83 m)

Ranges can use more than two values.

Convert Output
<code>{{convert|3|x|4|x|24|in}} 3 by 4 by 24 inches (76 mm × 102 mm × 610 mm)
{{convert|3|x|4|to|6+1/2|x|8+3/4|in}} 3 by 4 to 6 12 by 8 34 inches (76 mm × 102 mm to 165 mm × 222 mm)
