    ...such that...

    On Dictionary.com, it says:

    cause-and-effect
    adjective
    noting a relationship between actions or events such that one or more are the result of the other or others.
    -----------

    What does 'such that' here mean? Does it mean 'to the extent that'?

    You can replace it with "in which" here.

    I said that because I saw the explanation below.
