The fuzzy logic and fuzzy numbers have been applied in many fields such as operation research, differential equations, fuzzy system reliability etc. Now days in engineering applications the fuzzy logic and fuzzy numbers are widely used. In this paper we first describe Neutrosophic Fuzzy Number with arithmetic operations and solve a linear programming problem by Neutrosophic Fuzzy Number using Simplex algorithm.
