"a proprietary Dyadic Adjustment Scale"
"a proprietary multivariate linear regression equation"
"a proprietary multivariate logistic regression equation"
"an adapted quantum mechanics math equation"

B.6) How compatibility results are displayed
* only a number: like 110 (Cybersuitors), 96% (PlentyofFish Chemistry Predictor), 65 (Parship), 92.55033557% +/- 0.00000001% (LPM), etc.
