In the present uncertain socio-economic fashion, this pattern is highly acceptable and hence, the limitations of fuzzy set and intuitionistic fuzzy set are overcome with neutrosophic set theory. The present study provides a modified structure of linear programming problem (LP-problem) and its solution approach in neutrosophic sense. A special type of neutrosophic set defined over the set of real number, viz., single valued trapezoidal neutrosophic number (SVTN-number) is adopted here as the coefficients of the objective function, right-hand side coefficients and decision variables itself of an LP-problem. In order to solve such problem, a parameter based ranking function of SVTN-number is newly constructed from the geometrical configuration of the trapezium. It plays a key role in the development of the solution algorithm. An LP-problem is normally solved under the asset of some given constraints. Besides that, there may be some hidden parameters (e.g., awareness level of nearer society for the smooth run of a clinical pharmacy, ruined structure of road to be met a profit from a bus, etc) of an LP-problem and these affect the solution badly when experts ignore them. This study makes an attempt to solve an LP-problem by giving importance to all these to attain a fair outcome. The efficiency of the proposed concept is illustrated in a real field. A real example is stated and is solved numerically under the present view. 2020 2020 54 66 10.54216/IJNS.030202
