This paper discusses the use of quasi-Newton method algorithm employed in solving unconstrained optimization problems. The method is aimed at circumventing the computational rigours undergone using the Newton’s method.The Quasi –Newton method algorithm was tested on some benced mark problems with the results compared with the Conjugate Gradient Method. The results gotten using the Quasi-Newton Method compared favourably with results of existing CGM algorithm.
