The Weibull distribution is frequently applied in various fields, ranging from economy, business, biology, to engineering. This paper aims at estimating the parameters of two-parameter Weibull distribution are determined. For this purpose, the method of quantiles (three different choices of quantiles) and Weibull probability plot method is utilized. The asymptotic covariance matrix of the parameter estimates is derived for both methods. For optimal random choices of quantiles, the variance,
