In this paper, we investigate the new idea of optimal solution of squared triangular and trapezoidal fuzzy number via fuzzy russal’s method. This method is a modification of yager’s ranking method. A new algorithm is investigated and a suitable optimal solution is obtained. A numerical example is given based on the algorithms.
