    Cool A/An/One

    Hello again.
    Please, let me know the difference between a/an/one. I mean, I only use "one" when I'm talking about the quantity of something?

    Example: I have a friend. / I have one friend.
    They have one child. / They have a child.
    There is a TV in my house. / There is one TV in my house.

    Are both of them right? Is there any difference?

    Thanks.

    They are all right, but using 'one' you are stressing the number of items, while using 'a/an' you are indicating the existence of any.
