how to add a reference to assembly 'Mono.Android"

I keep getting an assembly error is asking me to add a reference to an assembly but i dont know were its located


The type 'Android.Content.Context' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'Mono.Android, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c4c4237547e4b6cd'.

Can someone please Explain.

    Exactly what type of project is it? Android Application? Android Class Library? PCL?

    If it's a PCL, you can't add Mono.Android to it. If it's and Android Application or Android Class Library, it should already have it.

    I am trying to build this Android PCL with a core and a android application project: I follow the steps and I still get the same errors, some forums say to delete and add the reference again I try to do that but it did not work out.
