This article concerned with the issue of solving a nonlinear equation with the help of iterative method where no derivative evaluation is required per iteration. Therefore, this work contributes to a new class of optimal eighth-order Steffensen-type methods. Theoretical proof has been given to reveal the eighth-order convergence. Numerical comparisons have been carried out to show the effectiveness of contributed scheme. Furthermore, we compare the performance of our proposed method by the basins of attraction with some existing eighth-order Steffensen-type methods.
