In this work we adopt a combination of Laplace
\r\ntransform and the decomposition method to find numerical solutions
\r\nof a system of multi-pantograph equations. The procedure leads to a
\r\nrapid convergence of the series to the exact solution after computing a
\r\nfew terms. The effectiveness of the method is demonstrated in some
\r\nexamples by obtaining the exact solution and in others by computing
\r\nthe absolute error which decreases as the number of terms of the series
\r\nincreases.<\/p>\r\n","references":"
