In this paper, the concept of single valued neutrosophic number (SV N-number) is presented in a generalized
way. Using this notion, a crisp linear programming problem (LP-problem) is extended to a neutrosophic linear
programming problem (NLP-problem). The coefficients of the objective function of a crisp LP-problem are considered
as generalized single valued neutrosophic number (GSV N-number). This modified form of LP-problem is here
called an NLP-problem. An algorithm is developed to solve NLP-problem by simplex method. Finally, this simplex
algorithm is applied to a real life problem. The problem is illustrated and solved numerically.
