**Abstract**

Since its genesis, an equation of Pexider type has captivated the attention of the mathematical fraternity around the world. Over the decades, several Pexiderized forms of various functional equations have been studied meticulously. In comparison to the functional equations, such forms are less analysed for sum form functional equations and require substantial study. Taking lead from it, this paper is devoted to obtain the general solution of some Pexiderized forms of a sum form functional equation

where *T* is a real-valued mapping with the domain *I* = [0, 1]; (*p*_{1}, …, *p*_{n})∈*Γ*_{n}, (*q*_{1}, …, *q*_{m})∈*Γ*_{m} and *n* ≥ 3, *m* ≥ 3 are fixed integers.
