Abstract



In solving non – linear equations by iterative method, Ohirhian (1994), (2005) [4],[5] developed a new algorithm based on cubic interpolation for solving non- linear equations of degree 1 to 3. The algorithm was found to be faster than the Regular falsi and the Newton Raphason method. This paper extend the algorithm to solving non linear equations of degree n by deriving a general formular, also some of the iteration procedures are reviewed for ease in computation.
