In this paper, we use the Sinc Function to solve the Fredholme-Volterra Integral Equations. By using collocation method we estimate a solution for Fredholme-Volterra Integral Equations. Finally convergence of this method will be discussed and efficiency of this method is shown by some examples. Numerical examples show that the approximate solutions have a good degree of accuracy.
