Abstract

Certain sum formulas with terms from balancing-like and Lucas-balancing-like sequences are discussed. The resemblance of some of these formulas with corresponding sum formulas involving natural numbers are exhibited.

Keywords

  • Balancing-like sequences
  • Lucas-balancing-like sequences
  • Fibonacci sequence
  • Binet form
