This study presents the approximate solutions of a system of Fractional Integro-Differential Equations (FIDEs) with least squares collocation Chebyshev technique. The technique reduce the problem to system of linear algebraic equations and then solved. The applicability of this method has been demonstrated by numerical examples. Numerical results show that the method is easy to implement and compares favorably with the exact results.
