In this work, we present a computational method for solving nonlinear Fredholm-Volterra integral equations of the second kind which is based on replacement of the unknown function by truncated series of well known Block-Pulse functions (BPfs) expansion. Error analysis is worked out that shows efficiency of the method. Finally, we also give some numerical examples.
