In this paper, we define the Fibonacci–Jacobsthal, Padovan–Fibonacci, Pell–Fibonacci, Pell–Jacobsthal, Padovan–Pell and Padovan–Jacobsthal sequences which are directly related with the Fibonacci, Jacobsthal, Pell and Padovan numbers and give their structural properties by matrix methods. Then we obtain new relationships between Fibonacci, Jacobsthal, Pell and Padovan numbers.
