In this paper, we define the arrowhead-Pell-random-type sequence and then we obtain the generating function and the generating matrix of the sequence. Also, we derive the permanental, determinantal, combinatorial and exponential representations and the sums of the arrowhead-Pell-random-type numbers using the generating function and the generating matrix of the sequence.
