Unhappy how do you delet more than 1 line using SED


Hey,
This might sound like a very stupid question? But I can't get the sed to delete more than 1 like at a time. I am using
sed 1d file that works
but when I do
sed 1-3d file gives me a error
what do I type in to delete first 3 line on a file?
Please help
Thanks
