Range of Current Through Resistor#

A resistor rated at 277 \(\rm\ k\Omega\) is connected across two D cell batteries (each 2.3 \(\textrm{ V}\)) in series, with a total voltage of 4.6 \(\textrm{ V}\). The manufacturer advertises that their resistors are within 6 \(\%\) of the rated value. What are the possible minimum current and maximum current through the resistor?
