This paper gives an ecient numerical method for solving the nonlinear system
of Volterra-Fredholm integral equations. A Legendre-spectral method based on
the Legendre integration Gauss points and Lagrange interpolation is proposed
to convert the nonlinear integral equations to a nonlinear system of equations
where the solution leads to the values of unknown functions at collocation
