A generic fuzzy relation often requires too many parameters to represent -- especially when we have a relation between many different quantities x1, ..., xn. There is, however, a class of relations which require much fewer parameters to describe - namely, relations which come from fuzzy rules. It is therefore reasonable to approximate a given relation by fuzzy rules. In this paper, we explain how this can be done in an important case when "and"- and "or"-operation are distributive -- and we also explain why this case is important.
