## Division of two LR fuzzy numbers

### Description

This function calculates the division of two LR fuzzy numbers. Although on the basis of Zadeh extension principle, the class of LR fuzzy numbers is not closed under the operations multiplication and division, but we consider the following approximation for division of fuzzy number  M=(m, \alpha, \beta)_{LR}  by fuzzy number  N=(n, \gamma, \delta)_{RL}  to work easy in the class of LR fuzzy numbers:

 M \oslash N \simeq \left( \frac{m}{n}, \frac{m \delta + n \alpha}{n^2}, \frac{m \gamma + n \beta}{n^2} \right)_{LR} 

### Usage

d(M, N)


### Arguments

 M The first LR (or RL or L) fuzzy number N The second LR (or RL or L) fuzzy number

### Value

A LR (or RL or L) fuzzy number
