In this paper we analyze the boundary layer equation f^'''+βff^''-α〖f'〗^2=0 using a group theoretical method known as symmetry method. We obtain the symmetry group admitted by the boundary layer equation. We then construct exact invariant solutions and outline a symmetry reduction. The invariant solution is examined under common boundary conditions.
