An analysis has been carried out to study the effects of velocity, thermal and solutal slips on a magnetohydrodynamic, steady, and incompressible laminar boundary layer flow with heat and mass transfer over a radiating cone due to a point sink. The problem has been solved by using a semi-analytical method called DTM-Padé. Graphical representations are obtained for velocity, temperature, and concentration distributions for various values of the governing parameters like suction/injection parameter s, magnetic parameter M, velocity slip \(\mathscr {L}\), thermal slip \(\delta _1\), concentration slip \(\delta _2\), radiation parameter R, Prandtl number Pr, and Schimdt number Sc. Also, the numerical results obtained for skin-friction coefficient have been compared with the corresponding results available in the literature and a good conformity has been found in between them.
