The paper deals with Finite difference Method of solving a boundary value problem involving a coupled pair of system of Ordinary Differential Equations. A novel iterative scheme is given for solving the Finite Difference Equations. Quasi-linearization used to convert a nonlinear problem into a series of linear problems. A problem from a flow of a nanofluid is presented as an example.
