The quasi-linearization method (QLM) and the rational Legendre functions are introduced here to present the numerical solution for the Newtonian fluid flow past an impermeable stretching sheet which embedded in a porous medium with a power-law surface velocity, variable thickness and slip velocity. Firstly, due to the high nonlinearity which yielded from the ordinary differential equation which describes the proposed physical problem, we construct a sequence of linear ODEs by using the QLM, hence the resulted equations become a system of linear algebraic equations. The comparison with the available results in the literature review proves that the obtained results via QLM are accurate, and the method is reliable.
