In this paper we apply the differential transform method for solving fifth-order boundary value problems. The analytical and numerical results of the equations have been obtained in terms of convergent series with easily computable components. Three examples are given to illustrate the efficiency and implementation of the present method. Comparisons are made to confirm the reliability of the method. Differential transform technique may be considered as alternative and efficient for finding the approximate solutions of the boundary values problems. © Association for Scientific Research.
