The divisor function is defined for a positive integer i by
The Dedekind eta function and the theta function are defined by
and an eta quotient of level N is defined by
It is important and interesting to determine explicit formulas of the representation number of positive definite quadratic forms.
Here we give the following Lemma, see (  , Theorem 1.64), about the modularity of an eta quotient.
Lemma 1. An eta quotient of level N is a meromorphic modular form of weight on having rational coefficients with respect to q if
For and a nonnegative integer n, we define
Clearly and without loss of generality we can assume that
Now, let’s consider sextenary quadratic forms of the form
We write to denote the number of representations of n by a sextenary quadratic form. Its theta function is obviously
Formulae for for the nine octonary quadratic forms (2i, 2j, 2k, 2l) = (8, 0, 0, 0), (2, 6, 0, 0), (4, 4, 0, 0), (6, 2, 0, 0), (2, 0, 6, 0), (4, 0, 4, 0), (6, 0, 2, 0), (4, 0, 0, 4), and (0, 4, 4, 0) appear in the literature, (cf.  -  ). Alaca and Williams have obtained some results on sextenary quadratic forms in terms of the functions and, see   . There are more works on representation number of sextenary quadratic forms in  -  . Other methods for representation number have been used in (cf.      ). Here, we will classify all fourtuples for which is a modular form of weight 8 with level 24. Then we will obtain their representation numbers in terms of the coefficients of Eisenstein series and some eta quotients.
First, by the following Theorem, we characterize the facts that
Theorem 1. Let
where, , be a sextenary quadratic form. Then its theta series is of the form
Moreover, it is in if and only if is given in the Table 1. Here we also see that are either both even or both odd.
Proof. It follows from the Lemma 1, holomorphicity criterion in (  Corollary 2.3, p. 37) and the fact

The condition is a square of a rational number implies that either are both even or both odd integers.

As a consequence of this Theorem, we have obtained the following Corollary.We have used Magma for the calculations.
The following representation numbers formulae are valid.
