Fuzzy similar priority ratio method is to select the most suitable one to the specific object from feasible alternatives. However, this method considering only the index values of real number has its disadvantages of inaccuracy in result and complexity in calculation. So, this method was extended to handle mixed attributes including real number, interval number, triangular fuzzy number, and trapezoidal fuzzy number. The proposed method decides the optimal alternative by the minimum of
