In the present paper, the researchers discuss the problem of weighted interval approximation of fuzzy numbers. This interval can be used as a crisp set approximation with respect to a fuzzy quantity. Then, by using this, the researchers propose a novel approach to ranking fuzzy numbers. This method can effectively rank various fuzzy numbers, their images and overcome the shortcomings of the previous techniques.
