This paper contains researches in the fuzzy measure theory. Convex families of measures are considered, among them upper and lower probabilities, superadditive measures, and it is found that these measures can be represented by sums of primitive measures. It gives a possibility us to get important results due to algebraic structure of fuzzy measures on the finite algebra and to generalize the well-known theorems of the probability theory.
