In this paper we present a new method for solving nonlinear Fredholm integral equations system in terms of continuous Legendre multi-wavelets on the interval [0, 1). To begin with we describe the characteristic of Legendre multi-wavelets and will go on to indicate that through this method a system of Fredholm integral equations can be reduced to an algebraic equation. Convergence analysis of this method is also presented. Finally, numerical results are given which support the theoretical results.
