We extend to finite fields in general the results proved, in a recent paper (J. Number Theory 9 (1977)) with the same title as the current work, by Chowla, Cowles, and Cowles for the prime fields. The results concern the dependence on s of the number of solutions of the equation x1 3 + x2 3 + ⋯ + x3 3 = 0. We also give results for the equation x1 4 + x2 4 + ⋯ + x8 4 = 0.
