In this paper, we define the dynamic programming approach to solve quadratic programming problem when the objective function can be written as the product of two linear factors with single linear constraint. An algorithm is proposed for solving such problems, we also solved the problems by simplex method to obtained the exact solution as dynamic programming technique. To demonstrate our proposed method, numerical examples are also illustrated
