# Solving Fuzzy Equations

## Abstract

In this chapter we first look at different types of solutions to the simple fuzzy linear equation \(\bar A \cdot \bar X + \bar B = \bar C\) and then systems of fuzzy linear equations. Solving fuzzy differential equations, fuzzy difference equations and fuzzy integral equations, come later on in the book. In the applications section we also look at solving \(\bar A{\bar X^2} + \bar B\bar X = \bar C,\), the fuzzy quadratic. At the end of the chapter we discuss fuzzy input-output analysis. Solutions to more complicated fuzzy equations are discussed in ([2], [3], [6]). Throughout this chapter, except in Section 3.5, we use triangular, and triangular shaped, fuzzy numbers. In Section 3.5 we use trapezoidal (shaped) fuzzy numbers.
