In this paper, we found the estimation of the unknown parameter $\delta$ when $\vartheta$  is a known parameter in the Pareto distribution. First, we get the maximum probability estimators(MLEs) for unknown parameters. We have obtained the Bayes Estimators of unknown parameter $\delta$  using Lindley's approximation. A Monte Carlo simulation is performed and used a programming language R to compare the performance of the method used, and the data set was analyzed for illustration purposes.
