In this paper, the Laplace Differential Transform Method (LDTM) was utilized to solve some nonlinear nonhomogeneous partial differential equations. This technique is the combined form of the Laplace transform method with the Differential Transform Method (DTM). The combined method is efficient in handling nonlinear nonhomogeneous partial differential equations with variable coefficients. Laplace transform is introduced to overcome the inadequacy resulted from unsatisfied boundary condition in using DTM. Illustrative examples were examined to demonstrate the effectiveness of Laplace differential transform method. Results revealed that the LDTM is well appropriate for use in solving such problems.
