We established an effective algorithm for the homotopy analysis method (HAM) to solve acubic isothermal auto-catalytic chemical system (CIACS). Our solution comes in a rapidly convergentseries where the intervals of convergence given by h-curves and to find the optimal values of h, weused the averaged residual errors. The HAM solutions are compared with the solutions obtained by Mathematica in-built numerical solver. We also show the behavior of the HAM solution.
