## A New Formula for the Sum of the Sixth Powers of Fibonacci Numbers

**Authors:** Hideyuki Ohtsuka, Shigeru Nakamura

Sloane's On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences incorrectly states
a lengthy formula for the sum of the sixth powers of the first n Fibonacci numbers.
In this paper we prove a more succinct formulation. We also provide an
analogue for the Lucas numbers. Finally, we prove a divisibility result for the
sum of certain even powers of the first n Fibonacci numbers.
