An attempt is made to represent the numerical solution of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) viscoelastic fluid flow through an infinite vertical flat plate with constant suction in the presence of Soret and Dufour effects. The expressions of non-dimensional, coupled partial momentum, energy and concentration differential equations are obtained with the help of the usual non-dimensional variables. Implicit finite difference method is imposed to obtain the non-dimensional equations. Also the stability conditions and convergence criteria are analyzed. The effects of the various parameters entering into the problem on shear stress, Nusselt number, and Sherwood number are demonstrated graphically with physical interpretation.
