In this paper, the researchers proposed a modified new weighted distance method to rank fuzzy numbers. The modified method can effectively rank various fuzzy numbers, their images and overcome the shortcomings of the previous techniques. The proposed model is studied for a broad class for fuzzy numbers and class of functions the membership of which is formed on the basis of the template ( ) max (0.1 ) s  x   x . This article also used some comparative examples to illustrate the advantage of the proposed method.
