A novel modification of the variational iteration method is proposed by means of Laplace transform and homotopy perturbation method. The fractional lagrange multiplier is accurately determined by the Laplace transform and the nonlinear one can be easily handled by the use of He’s polynomials. Several fractional nonlinear nonhomogeneous equations are analytically solved as examples and the methodology is demonstrated.
