In this paper, an analytical technique is proposed to determine the exact solution of fractional order modified Fornberg–Whitham equation. Since exact solution of fractional Fornberg–Whitham equation is unknown, first integral method has been applied to determine exact solutions. The solitary wave solution of fractional modified Fornberg–Whitham equation has been attained by using first integral method. The approximate solutions of fractional modified Fornberg–Whitham equation, obtained by optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM), are compared with the exact solutions obtained by the first integral method. The obtained results are presented in tables to demonstrate the efficiency of these proposed methods. The proposed schemes are quite simple, effective, and expedient for obtaining solution of fractional modified Fornberg–Whitham equation.
