Then we consider a multiple attribute decision making (MADM) problem with interval trapezoidal neutrosophic numbers. The weight information of each attribute in the multi attribute decision making problem is expressed in terms of interval trapezoidal neutrosophicnumbers. To develop distance measure based MADM strategy with interval trapezoidal neutrosophic numbers, we define normalised Hamming distance measure of the proposed numbers and develop an algorithm to determine the weight of the attributes. Using these weights, we aggregate the distance measures of preference values of each alternative with respect to ideal alternative. Then we determine the ranking order of all alternatives according to the aggregated weighted distance measures of all available alternatives. Finally, we provide an illustrative example to show the feasibility, applicability of the proposed MADM strategy with interval trapezoidal neutrosophic numbers.}, number={2018-04-28}, journal={Neutrosophic Sets and Systems}, author={Biswas, Pranab Biswas and Pramanik, Surapati Pramanik and Giri, Bibhas Chandra Giri}, year={2018}, month={Apr.}, pages={40–46} }
