Is it going too far to ask a potential girlfriend to fill out a potential partner evaluation form?
You have, of course, offered her your version of the same form (or equivalent), filled out with all your answers, right?I just applied for a job I may decide I don’t want because their application process is so 1999. Allow that your prospective partners will be evaluating your date selection process while they fill out the form. It is possible that some women will relish a more straightforward, apparently data-driven approach and find it more comfortable to write answers than to talk.This might actually be the best way to weed out incompatible partners, for you.You will have to accept that this WILL weed out incompatible partners, of course. As long as you can live with that fall out, I’m all for reducing the field of candidates to manageable numbers as fast as possible.You might want to have the form reviewed by someone you trust who can help you evaluate how you have worded the various questions and make sure that the data you are seeking is actually relevant to your criteria.(And you do have criteria, of course.)
Can you add 5 odd numbers to get 30?
It is 7,9 + 9,1 + 1 + 3 + 9 = 30Wish you can find the 7,9 and 9,1 in the list of1,3,5, 7,9 ,11,13,151,3,5,7, 9,1 1,13,15
Mathematical Puzzles: What is + + = 30 using 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15?
My question had been merged with another one and as a result, I have added the previous answer to the present one. Hopefully this provides a clearer explanation. Just using the numbers given there, it's not possible, because odd + odd = even, even + odd = odd. 30 is an even number, the answer of 3 odd numbers must be odd, it's a contradiction. If what people say is true, then the question is wrongly phrased its any number of operations within those three brackets must lead to 30. Then it becomes a lot easier. Such as 15 + 7 + (7 + 1). That would give 30. But it assumes something that the question does not state explicitly and cannot be done that way. I still stick to my first point, it can't be done within the realm of math and just using three numbers, if not, then the latter is a way to solve it.EDIT: This question has come up many times, Any odd number can be expressed as the following, Let [math]n, m, p[/math] be an odd number, [math] n = 1 (mod[/math] [math]2), m = 1 (mod[/math] [math]2), p = 1 (mod[/math] [math]2)[/math][math]n+m+p = 1 + 1 + 1 (mod[/math] [math]2)[/math]Let's call [math]n+m+p[/math] as [math]x[/math][math]= x = 3 (mod[/math] [math]2)[/math]Numbers in modulo n can be added, I'll write a small proof for it below, [math]a = b (mod[/math] [math]n), c = d (mod[/math] [math]n)[/math][math]a+c = b+d (mod[/math] [math]n)[/math]We can rewrite [math]b[/math] and [math]d[/math] in the following way, [math]n | (b - a) = b-a = n*p[/math] (for some integer p) [math]b = a + np[/math][math]b = a + np, d = c + nq[/math][math]b + d = a + np + c + nq[/math][math]b+d = a + c + n(p + q)[/math]Now we have shown that our result is true, moving forward, [math]3 = 1 (mod[/math] [math]2)[/math][math]x = 1 (mod[/math] [math]2)[/math]Therefore the sum of three odd numbers can never be even. It will always be congruent to 1 in mod 2.(This was what I wrote for a merged answer).Modular arithmetic - Link on modular arithmetic, the basic operations.

How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.
