A numerical approach comes to mind:
Clear[A];
A[x_ /; -1 < x <= 1] := (x + 1)/2;
A[x_ /; 1 < x <= 3] := (3 - x)/2;
A[x_] := 0;
Plot[A[x], {x, -1.2, 3.2}];
Rewrite the definition of A using UnitStep
Clear[A]
A[x_] := UnitStep[x + 1]*(x + 1)/2 + UnitStep[x - 1]*(-x + 1) +
UnitStep[x - 3]*(x - 3)/2
Plot[A[x], {x, -1.2, 3.2}];
Look for a root in each region
x /. FindRoot[A[x] == .4, {x, #}] & /@ {.5, 1.5}
{-0.2, 2.2}
x /. Table[FindRoot[A[x] == a, {x, #}] & /@ {.5, 1.5}, {a, 0, 1, .2}]
{{-1., 3.}, {-0.6, 2.6}, {-0.2, 2.2}, {0.2, 1.8}, {0.6, 1.4}, {1., 1.}}
