The coupled Altarelli-Parisi (AP) equations for polarized singlet quark distribution and polarized gluon distribution, when considered in the small x limit of the next to leading order (NLO) splitting functions, reduce to a system of two first order linear nonhomogeneous integrodifferential equations. We have applied the method of successive approximations to obtain the solutions of these equations. We have applied the same method to obtain the approximate analytic expressions for spin-dependent quark distribution functions with individual flavour and polarized structure functions for nucleon.
