Hooking up new stove

I just purchased a new freestanding range to replace my older slide-in. The older stove was hardwired. I have three wires coming out of my wall. They are black, white w/red dot which I believe means it is being used as a hot and a bare wire. The new range has four terminals under the cover on the back. Is there a way to hardwire this together? If not what do I need to do to hook it up properly? Thanks for your time.

By the way. The old stove had flexible conduit coming out of it with a red, black, white, and bare wire. They had two of the wires connected together.

You need a NEMA 10-50R 3-wire range outlet for that circuit. The neutral bonding jumper will have to be in place on the new appliance as well.

Your stove instruction manual should have the info on how to connect it as a three wire setup.
What size cable and breaker was on the old range?
