Default Probability bounds lower than other bounds

Let's say, hypothetically, that we have two probability bound formulae. Let's say we evaluate them for some arguments, and we find that formula A yields 2, and formula B yields 3. We are asked which bound is smaller. Do we say, formula A's bound is smaller, because our ace arithmetic skills allow us to compare two numbers and say which is smaller? Or do we say, they are equal, because neither 2 nor 3 is a probability, so neither of them bounds the probability of the event in any way?
