In this paper, statistical averaging method (arithmetic mean, geometric mean) and new statistical averaging method (new arithmetic mean, new geometric mean) have been proposed for extreme point multi-objective linear programming problem (EPMOLPP). Extreme point can be taken from graphical representation of linear programming problem (LPP). Graphical solution of LPP has been discussed in this research The objective of this method is for making single objective from multi-objective extreme point linear programming problem. Chandra Sen’s method is for making single objective from multi-objective linear programming problem (MOLPP). Here Chandra Sen’s method has also been used to solve EPMOLPP. An algorithm and program solution have been given for our proposed method to solve such type of problems. A numerical example is given and the result in Table 2 indicates that the proposed technique gives better results.
