    2 through 10 ?

    This produces a number in the range of 2 through 10.

    I have no idea in this sentence as above.

    It should be 'in the range of 2 to 10'.

    Not a teacher.

    I am not a teacher.

    In BrE, '2 to 10' usually means from 2 to 10 inclusive.

    In AmE, '2 through 10' means the same thing.

    Re: 2 through 10 ?

    The meaning of the sentence is not clear because we don't know what "this" is. The range of the numbers refers to the values that are produced -- no smaller than 2 and no larger than 10.
