Consumer Surplus and Producer Surplus of the Linear Demand and Supply Functions using Interval-Valued Triangular Fuzzy Numbers

Bekir AKBAS, Salih AYTAR


In this paper, we fuzzified the quantity of the functions of linear demand and supply by using the interval-valued triangular fuzzy numbers. Then we calculated consumer surplus and producer surplus. We apply the signed distance defuzzification method to get the crisp results.
