Between these words

Are you aware that among and between have quite distinct meanings and can’t be used in the same way?

among: surrounded by, part of, included with
Divided among a team of ten, five oranges didn’t go far.

between: fitting in, across or along a spectrum or group
They will provide between $2 and $5 per person for catering.

So you need to use between for two items, and among for more than two items.
