Count 5 to 6 versus 5 or 6?

Filed under: English,Language — ramsblog @ 8:02 am

I am not sure if it is the language usage or something else. I have noticed people saying (yes, I did/do too) “there are about 3 to 4 units available”, “I bought 5 to 6 units (shirts) ” , et, al – when there is no option of buying half (example, I bought about 4 to 5 dozens of Apples). 
So which one is correct? [5 to 6 units] OR [5 or 6 units?]
