We consider the following problem in the paper of Kim et al. (2010): “Find Witt's formula for Carlitz's type q-Euler numbers.” We give Witt's formula for Carlitz's type q-Euler numbers, which is an answer to the above problem. Moreover, we obtain a new p-adic q-l-function lp,q(s,χ) for Dirichlet's character χ, with the property that lp,q(n,χ)=En,χn,qχn(p)[p]qnEn,χn,qp for n=0,1, using the fermionic p-adic integral on p.
