First off, I am new to this forum so I am not sure if this is where I should post this, so please bare with me here.
I have removed an old range that had three wires rather then the new (3) and (4) metal prongs that were attached to the back of my old range. However, my New range has (4) hookups with essentially the same as my original but what appears to be now also a ground wire. My system however in my house is ungrounded.
My question is, would it be OK to utilize my (3) wires that use to be hooked up to my old range to hook up to my new range via the back paneling. Having the White in the Center, the Black to the Black and the last Wire to the other Wire Device & then put then screw the nut in place to ensure the wiring does not get loose?
I also have pictures of this scenario if you can not envision what I am asking and my setup that I am attempting to make vivid via this post.

If you know about this topic and have genuine advice and are qualified please contact me, although if you are not familiar with this sort of setup, electrician type installation please refrain from contacting me as I would like to approach this as professional would.
Also if there are different options as well, please let me know which ones are my best. However, I would like to just hook up the three wires to the back of the range as that would be the easiest for me and the Lowe’s guy said I could do that if I wanted but he suggested in the future to get my system rewired so I had either a (3) prong or (4) prong system, rather then the typical wires that I have resembling those that you twist together when installing a ceiling light or fan for example.

Pictures of my current hookup that was utilized to hookup my old range and this is what it looks like after disconnected. Appears to be identical to the new (3) or (4) prong setup, just with Metal pieces on the new Plugs rather then old fashion Wiring
