The Sumudu decomposition method was used and developed in this paper to find approximate solutions for a general form of fractional integro-differential equation of Volterra and Fredholm types. The Caputo definition was used to deal with fractional derivatives. As the method under consideration depends mainly on writing non-linear terms, which are often found inside the kernel of the integral equation, writing it in the form of Adomian’s polynomials in the well-known way. After applying the Sumudu transformation to both sides of the integral equation, the solution was written in the form of a convergent infinite series whose terms can be alternately calculated. The method was applied to three examples of non-linear integral equations with fractional derivatives. The results that were presented in the form of tables and graphs showed that the method is accurate, effective and highly efficient.
