Abstract

Molodtsov initiated soft set theory that provided a general mathematical
framework for handling with uncertainties in which we encounter the data by affix parameterized factor during the information analysis as differentiated to fuzzy as well as bipolar fuzzy set theory.
The main object of this paper is to lay a foundation for providing a new application of bipolar fuzzy soft tool in considering many problems that contain uncertainties. In present study, aggregation of bipolar fuzzy soft numbers have
so far not yet been applied for ranking of alternatives in decision-making problems.
To this propose, bipolar fuzzy soft weighted arithmetic averaging (BFSWAA) operator, bipolar fuzzy soft weighted geometric averaging (BFSWGA) operator
have been used to compare two bipolar fuzzy soft numbers (BFSNs) for aggregating different bipolar fuzzy soft input arguments in bipolar fuzzy soft environment.
Then, their related properties have been investigated.
Finally, a practical example for selection of alternatives is given to demonstrate
the utility and application of the proposed work.
