Abstract: Paediatric is one of the branches in medicine dealing with health and medical care for infants, children and adolescents. Recent findings show that the number of paediatric patients is increasing year by year. In this study, a data of paediatric patients from 2005 until 2015 is collected from Specialist Clinic HSNZ, Kuala Terengganu. By using discrete least square method of numerical analysis and conjugate gradient method in unconstrained optimization, an estimation of 2016 data can be forecasted. These methods have been chosen based on its simplicity and accuracy. The calculations are based on linear and quadratic approach together with their errors. Results showed that the conjugate gradient method is comparable with the quadratic least square method.
