In this work, a final state wave function is constructed which represents a solution of the three-body Schrödinger equation. The formulated wave function is superimposed of one basic analytical function with various parameters. The coefficients of these basic functions involved in final state wave function can be easily calculated from a set of linear equations. The coefficients depend only on incident energy of the system. The process can also be prolonged for application to the problems more than three bodies.
