    golden mean (article)

    I'm not sure whether I should use an article or not.

    You need to find a/the/- golden mean.

    Let's think a little. There's can be only one golden mean. It means that an indefinite artcile is wrong. What would you say?

    I'd use "the".

    I can provide more context if it's required.

    Thanks in advance.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
