Can someone help explain :ranked by?

Just like @lantzgould mentioned. I am just too slow at typing… It is used for matching purposes. From the Bubble Reference:

":ranked by…

Ranks a list of things by average RMS similarity of all numerical fields to a target item of the same type. Use this to match people for a dating app for instance."

Here is an example for you:

For me, the confusing part was to figure out which number it was comparing. Then I noticed it said “ALL numerical fields” so it actually ranks it by ALL of the numbers I saved in the database attached to the user. Hope that makes sense.
