When we say that the people are between 13 and 16 years old, are they
14 and 15, OR 13, 14, 15 and 16?

What if we say the people are from 13 to 16 years old. Is there any difference?

Many thanks.

@tanguatlay,
The difficulty for me is that age is not just a year integer. "Between 13 and 16" would mean, to me from the 13th birthday to the 16th birthday.

"From 13 to 16 years old" would mean, (again, to me), from the 13th birthday up to but not including the 17th birthday.
