Mathematical models from recent research are mostly nonlinear equations in nature. Numerical solutions to such systems are widely needed and applied in those areas of  mathematics. Although, in recent years, this field received serious attentions and new approach were discovered, but yet the efficiency of the previous versions suffers setback. This article gives a new hybrid conjugate gradient parameter, the method is derivative-free and analyzed with an effective inexact line search in a given conditions. Theoretical proofs show that the proposed method retains the sufficient descent and global convergence properties of the original CG methods. The proposed method is tested on a set of test functions, then compared to the two previous classical CG-parameter that resulted the given method, and its performance is given based on number of iterations and CPU time. The numerical results show that the new proposed method is efficient and effective amongst all the methods tested. The graphical representation of the result justify our findings. The computational result indicates that the new hybrid conjugate gradient parameter is suitable and capable for solving symmetric systems of nonlinear equations.
