    Default An article questions

    Hi All,

    I am not sure whether I should use 'the' or 'a' in the following sentence. The author mentioned that range for the first time in that sentence.
    What is the guidining principal in this kind of situation?

    "We believe the miss on a cash basis is in the/ a $0.02-0.03 range."

    Thanks,

    MG.
