We present a new third order Runge Kutta method based on linear combination of arithmetic mean, geometric mean and harmonic mean to solve a first order initial value problem. We also derive the local truncation error and show the stability region for the method. Moreover, we compare the new method with Runge Kutta method based on arithmetic mean, geometric mean and harmonic mean. The numerical results show that the performance of the new method is the same as known third order Runge-Kutta methods.
