### 1. Introduction

Integral equations are encountered in various fields of science and in numerous applications, including elasticity, plasticity, heat and mass transfer, oscillation theory, fluid dynamics, filtration theory, electrostatics, electrodynamics, biomechanics, game theory, control, queuing theory, electrical engineering, economics, and medicine.

Often by consideration of the integral equations containing small parameter, the averaging method of Bogolyubov - Krylov ^{[1, 2]} is applied. Two approaches are thus used:

1) the integral equation is reduced to integro-differential by differentiation, and then one of the averaging schemes is applied ^{[3, 4, 5]};

2) one of the averaging schemes is applied directly to the integral equation ^{[3, 4, 5, 6, 7]}.

Recently the set-valued and fuzzy integral equations and inclusions began to be considered [6-14]^{[6]}. In this paper the substantiation of the averaging method for fuzzy integral equation using the second approach is considered.

**Definition 1.** ^{[15]} A mapping is measurable [continuous] if for any the set-valued mapping defined by is Lebesgue measurable [continuous].

**Definition 2.** ^{[15]} A mapping is said to be integrably bounded if there exists an integrable function such that for all.

**Definition 3.** ^{[15]} The integral of a fuzzy mapping is defined levelwise by : is a measurable selection of for all .

**Definition 4.** ^{[15]} A measurable and integrably bounded mapping is said to be integrable over if .

Note that if is measurable and integrably bounded, then is integrable. Further if is continuous, then it is integrable.

The proof of this theorem is similar to the proof of Theorem 1.

Similar to Theorem 2 the periodic case can be considered.

### 4. Conclusion

Theorems 1-3 generalize the results of ^{[16]} on substantiation of the averaging method for fuzzy differential equations. When passing from the fuzzy differential equation to the equivalent fuzzy integral equation we have that conditions 1), 3), 4) of Theorems 1,3 hold owing to the corresponding conditions on the right hand sides of the initial fuzzy differential equation, and condition 2) is satisfied because the fuzzy mapping is Lipschitzian in *t* as the right-hand side of the fuzzy differential equation is uniformly bounded.
