Fuzzy system of linear equations (FSLE) plays a major role in various areas such as operational research, physics, statistics, economics, engineering, and social sciences since the parameters of FSLE are not always exactly known and stable in real-life problems. This effect may follow the lack of exact information, changeable economic conditions, etc. Although there exist many review papers on the solution methods for FSLE, they are not based on the applications. This chapter has attempted to provide a short review on real-life applications of FSLE. In addition, for the common application areas, the fundamental models and the solution methods are presented considering the most cited and leading papers in the literature.
