© This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.The main interest of this paper is to propose a numerical scheme in order to solve linear systems of Volterra-Fredholm integro-differential equations given with mixed conditions. The proposed method is a weighted residual scheme which uses monomials up to a prescribed degree N as the basis functions. By taking inner product of the equation system with the elements of this basis set in a Galerkin-like fashion, the original problem is transformed into a linear algebraic equation system. After a suitable incorporation of the mixed conditions, a final algebraic system is obtained, from which the approximate solutions of the problem are computed. The proposed numerical scheme is illustrated with example problems taken from the literature.
