I'm not sure which article should be used. Here is an example.

There are three people and three houses.
I establish a pair between each of the people and a corresponding one of the houses, and calculate a distance for each association between the (a?) person and the (a?) house.

Should I use "a" instead of "the" here?

I’ll appreciate any comment. Thank you for reading!
