Abstract. In 1999, Molodtsov introduced the concept of soft sets as a general mathematical tool for the dealing with uncertainty. The solution of such problems involves the use of mathematical principles based on uncertainty and imprecision. N. Cagman and S. Enginoglu [#!NCagman2!#] introduced the notion of soft matrices in 2010 from the theory of soft sets. They also constructed a soft max-min decision making method which can be successfully applied to the decision making for two person in soft matrix approach. Inspired by the soft matrices we are interested to find a new decision making theory which involves more than two persons or three persons. As an outcome in this paper, we apply the decision making for three persons in soft matrix approach and provide some interesting results on it.
