In this paper, we examine the nonlinear Weakly Singular Volterra Integral Equation(WSVIE), $u(x)=f(x)+\int_{0}^{x}\frac{t^{\mu-1}}{x^\mu}[u(t)]^\beta dt$. AL-Jawary and Shehan used Daftardar-Jafari Method(DJM) and solved the above integral equation for the investigation parameter $\mu>1$ using specific force functions with $\mu$ and $\beta$ values and obtained unique solutions. We have discovered a force function $f(x)=x^{k_1}-{\frac{x^{\gamma k_1}}{\gamma k_1+\mu}}$, that allows the introduction of noise terms phenomena discovered by Wazwaz; that cancel out the terms of the power series in the successive solution terms $u_m$, $m=0,1,2,...,n$: we thus obtain a maximum finite power series terms for each solution term called truncation point and denoted by $x^{g(n)}$. Such that the integral solution can be written as $u(x)=u_0+\sum_{m=1}^{n}u_m$, where $n$ is finite. Simplifying the solution terms we get the unique solution $u(x)=x^{k_1}$, irrespective of $n-$value in the truncation point. We discovered a formula relation between the last solution term $u_n$ and the truncation point as $u_n=a_nx^{g(n)}$. Our results confirm the results of the two solution examples of AL-Jawary and Shehan for the investigation parameter $\mu>1$. We extend the parameter range to include $\mu>1$ and $0<\mu\leq 1$ for our solution. In addition, for any chosen rational parameter $k_1$, the solution $u(x)=x^{k_1}$ is extrapolated to be valid for all integer parameter values $\beta\geq 2$, and positive rational parameter value $\mu>0$ and for any finite value of $n\geq2$.
