This study apply an integrated symbolic power series method - Padé approximants technique (PS - Padé) to solve a system of nonlinear differential equations arising from the similarity solution of viscous flow over a nonlinear porous shrinking sheet, variable magnetohydrodynamic effects and suction or injection. Combination of power series solution with the Padé approximants is used to handling boundary value condition on the semi-infinite domain of solution. The obtained results are compared with numerical results as well as other results in the literature. The results have good agreement with numerical and other results. It is found that velocity profiles and skins fractions are increased with increase of mass suction or magnetic effects.
