In this paper, we consider the generalized Benjamin-Bona-Mahony-Burgers (BBMB) equations. A variety of exact solutions to the BBMB equations are developed by means of the tanh method. A sinc-Galerkin procedure is also developed to solve the BBMB equations. Sinc approximations to both the derivatives and the indefinite integrals reduce the system to an explicit system of algebraic equations. It is shown that sinc-Galerkin approximations produce an error of exponential order. A comparison of the two methods for solving the BBMB equation was made regarding their solutions. The study outlines the features of the sinc method.
