In this paper, the solution methodology of higher-order linear fractional partial deferential equations (FPDEs) as mentioned in eqs (1) and (2) below in Caputo definition relies on a new analytical method which is called the Laplace-residual power series method (L-RPSM). The main idea of our proposed technique is to convert the original FPDE in Laplace space, and then apply the residual power series method (RPSM) by using the concept of limit to obtain the solution. Some interesting and important numerical test applications are given and discussed to illustrate the procedure of our method, and also to confirm that this method is simple, understandable and very fast for obtaining the exact and approximate solutions (ASs) of FPDEs compared with other methods such as RPSM,variational iteration method (VIM), homotopy perturbation method (HPM) and Adomian decomposition method (ADM). The main advantage of the proposed method is its simplicity in computing the coefficients of terms of series solution by using only the concept of limit at infinity and not as the other well-known analytical method such as, RPSM that need to obtain the fractional derivative (FD) each time to determine the unknown coefficients in series solutions, and VIM, ADM, or HPM that need the integration operators which is difficult in fractional case.
