In this paper, we proposed a three-point iterative method for finding the simple roots of non- linear equations via mid-point and interpolation approach. The method requires one evaluation of the derivative and three(3) functions evaluation with efficiency index of 81/4 ≈ 1.682. Numerical results reported here, between the proposed method with some other existing methods shows that our method is promising.
