Abstract

In this paper, we develop a new eighth-order method for simple roots of non- linear equations via weight function and interpolation methods. The method requires only three(3) function evaluation and a derivative evaluation with 81/4 ≈ 1.682 efficiency index . Numerical comparison between the proposed method with some other methods were presented, which shows that our method is promising .
