#### Abstract

This paper concerns the relationship between rough sets, -fuzzy sets, and the LA-semihypergroups. We proved that the lower approximation (-approx) and the upper approximation (-approx) of different hyperideals of LA-semihypergroups become again hyperideal and also provided some examples. We also provided a result which shows that, if is not a hyperideal of an LA-semihypergroup , then its lower approximation is also not a hyperideal.

#### 1. Introduction

Hyperstructures represent a natural extension of classical algebraic structures. Algebraic hyperstructure theory depends on hyperoperation and their properties. One of these theories is the semihypergroup theory. Semihypergroup theory was first introduced by French Mathematician Marty in 1934 [1]. The concept of semihypergroup is the generalization of the concept of semigroup. In semigroup, the composition of two elements is an element, while in a semihypergroup the composition of two elements is a nonempty set. In semihypergroup, closure and associative law hold. Many authors studied different aspects of semihypergroup (see [2–4]). Recently, Hila and Dine [5] introduced the notion of LA-sm-hyp-group (LA-semihypergroup), and then, Yaqoob, Corsini, and Yousafzai [6] extended the work of Hila and Dine and characterized intraregular left almost semihypergroups by their HP-ideals (hyperideals) using pure left identity. The concept of ordered semihypergroup was studied by Heidari and Davvaz [7] where they used a binary relation on semihypergroup such that the binary relation is a partial order and the structure is known as ordered semihypergroup [8].

The concept of fuzzy sets was first introduced by Zadeh [9] in 1964. Fuzzy set is a set having degrees of membership between 1 and 0. Fuzzy set theory is a classical application of set theory. Applications of fuzzy sets in some algebraic structures and other structures can be seen in [10–13]. Zdzisław Pawlak [14] introduced the notion of rough sets, in the year 1982. Rough set theory constitutes a sound basis for knowledge discovery databases. It offers mathematical tools to discover pattern hidden in data. It can be used for feature selection, feature extraction, decision rule generation, and paper extraction. Applications of rough sets in some algebraic structures and algebraic hyperstructures can be seen in [15–36].
