I currently have a counting system where if we have a red and blue jar, and the red jar has 3 items while the blue jar has 6, I say that the blue jar had an "increase" over the red jar.
However, I am hoping to come up with a way to disambiguate a comparison where one jar has none, and the other has at least one. For example, in the above I would consider the two jars to be the same, because both have at least one item.
But, if the red jar had no items and the blue jar had 2 items, I would like to come up with a phrase/word for describing the fact the blue jar is "larger" than the red jar.
Is there a phrase or term for describing "all or nothing" size comparisons?
