##### On the Solution of Fully Fuzzy Linear Systems

**Authors:**
Hsuan-Ku Liu

**Abstract:**

A linear system is called a fully fuzzy linear system (FFLS) if quantities in this system are all fuzzy numbers. For the FFLS, we investigate its solution and develop a new approximate method for solving the FFLS. Observing the numerical results, we find that our method is accurate than the iterative Jacobi and Gauss- Seidel methods on approximating the solution of FFLS.

**Keywords:**
Fully fuzzy linear equations,
iterative method,
homotopy perturbation method,
approximate solutions.
