**Summary: **
The generalization of the concept of successive ranks to hook differences led
to the extension of the successive ranks theorem to partition identity
involving hook differences. Agarwal and Andrews rephrased a special case of
the partition identity involving hook differences in terms of Frobenius
partitions to obtain Rogers-Ramanujan identities for partitions with n + t
copies of n. In this paper, we generalize these identities to obtain (n +
t)–color analogue of Gordon's theorem. We further invoke the special case of
the partition identity on hook differences involving quintuple product to
obtain n–color partitions for a quintuple product arising in an identity due
to Sills.
