In this paper ,we study estimation of two parameters of Weibull distribution .Methods of estimation used are maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) and Bayes. We compared the numerical results by simulation in MATLAB program. The comparison show that the Bayes estimator gives the best results ( less error) .
