Although I know the equations for triangular membership function but I can't figure out how they are derived. Are they derived from slope of line concept or by some other concept. Need your help guys. Last edited by ritz321; February 3rd, 2016 at 12:41 AM.

for $a \le x \le b$, slope is $m=\dfrac{1}{ba}$ point $(x_1,y_1)=(a,0)$ is on the line ... $yy_1=m(xx_1)$ $y0=\dfrac{1}{ba}(xa)$ you may arrive at the equation for the line beteen $b$ and $c$ in the same manner.

What "overlap" do you mean?
