This paper investigates existence and uniqueness results for the
first order fuzzy integro-differential equations. Then numerical results and
error bound based on the left rectangular quadrature rule, trapezoidal rule
and a hybrid of them are obtained. Finally an example is given to illustrate
the performance of the methods.
