I'm confused about these two concepts, I think because, if I'm not mistaken, there is no such division of superlative in English. Could anyone explain it to me? Tack så mycket

Sure there is in English - for instance, "most" would be indefinite and "the most" would be definite. It works the same way in Swedish as in English, except we change the adjective ending, mostly just tacking on an -e at the end.

So gulast would mean "most yellow", and gulaste would mean "the most yellow".
