We present a local convergence analysis of an eighth-order method for approximating a locally unique solution of a non-linear equation. Earlier studies such as have shown convergence of these methods under hypotheses up to the seventh derivative of the function although only the first derivative appears in the method. In this study, we expand the applicability of these methods using only hypotheses up to the first derivative of the function. This way the applicability of these methods is
