In this study, an iterative scheme of sixth order of convergence for solving systems of nonlinear equations is presented. The scheme is composed of three steps, of which the first two steps are that of third order Potra–Pták method and last is weighted-Newton step. Furthermore, we generalize our work to derive a family of multi-step iterative methods with order of convergence 3 r + 6 , r = 0 , 1 , 2 , . The sixth order method is the special case of this multi-step scheme for r = 0 . The family gives a four-step ninth order method for r = 1 . As much higher order methods are not used in practice, so we study sixth and ninth order methods in detail. Numerical examples are included to confirm theoretical results and to compare the methods with some existing ones. Different numerical tests, containing academical functions and systems resulting from the discretization of boundary problems, are introduced to show the efficiency and reliability of the proposed methods.
