We apply our new fuzzy Monte Carlo method to a certain fuzzy linear regression problem to estimate the best solution. The best solution is a vector of crisp numbers, for the coefficients in the model, which minimizes one of two error measures. We use a quasi-random number generator to produce random sequences of these crisp vectors which uniformly fill the search space. We consider an example problem and show this Monte Carlo method obtains the best solution for both error measures.
