Scales of Measurements: Magnitude
"Moreness". Instance of the attribute represents more, less, or equal amounts of the given quantity than does another instance. eg. John is taller than Fred. A scale that does not have this property arises, for example, when a gym coach assigns identifi cation numbers to teams in a league (team 1, team 2, and so forth). Because the numbers only label the teams, they do not have the property of magnitude. If the coach were to rank the teams by the number of games they have won, then the new numbering system (games won) would have the property of magnitude.
