Our aim in this paper is to study with some properties of the solutions of the difference equation
where the coefficients and are positive real numbers, and where the initial conditions are arbitrary positive real numbers. There is a class of nonlinear difference equations, known as the rational difference equations, each of which consists of the ratio of two polynomials in the sequence terms in the same form. There has been a lot of work concerning the global asymptotics of solutions of rational difference equations  - .
Many researchers have investigated the behavior of the solution of difference equation. For example:
Amleh et al.  has studied the global stability, boundedness and the periodic character of solutions of the equation
Our aim in this paper is to extend and generalize the work in  ,  and  . That is, we will investigate the global behavior of (1.1) including the asymptotical stability of equilibrium points, the existence of bounded solution, the existence of period two solution of the recursive sequence of Equation (1).
Now we recall some well-known results, which will be useful in the investigation of (1.1) and which are given in  .
Let I be an interval of real numbers and let

Equation (1.2) is called permanent if there exists numbers m and M with such that for any initial conditions there exists a positive integer N which depends on the initial conditions such that
Definition 4. (Periodicity)
A sequence is said to be periodic with period p if for all. A sequence is said to be periodic with prime period p if p is the smallest positive integer having this property.
The linearized equation of Equation (1.2) about the equilibrium point is defined by the equation
The characteristic equation associated with Equation (1.3) is

Theorem 1.2.  Assume that F is a -function and let be an equilibrium point of Equation (1.2). Then the following statements are true:
1) If all roots of Equation (1.4) lie in the open unit disk, then he equilibrium point is locally asymptotically stable.
2) If at least one root of Equation (1.4) has absolute value greater than one, then the equilibrium point is unstable.
3) If all roots of Equation (1.4) have absolute value greater than one, then the equilibrium point is a source.

2. Local Stability of Equation (1.1)
In this section we investigate the local stability character of the solutions of Equation (1.1). Equation (1.1) has a unique nonzero equilibrium point
Then, we get
Let be a function defined by
Therefore it follows that

Theorem 2.1. Assume that
Then the equilibrium point of Equation (1.1) is locally stable.
Proof. It is follows by Theorem (1.3) that, Equation (2.2) is locally stable if
This implies that
Hence, the proof is completed.
3. Periodic Solutions
In this section we investigate the periodic character of the positive solutions of Equation (1.1).
Theorem 3.1. Equation (1.1) has positive prime period-two solution only if
Proof. Assume that there exists a prime period-two solution
of (1.1). Let Since, we have Thus, from Equation (1.1), we get
Subtracting (3.2) from (3.3) gives
Since, we have
Also, since p and q are positive, should be positive. Again, adding (3.2) and (3.3) yields
It follows by (3.4), (3.5) and the relation
Assume that p and q are two distinct real roots of the quadratic equation
which is equivalent to
Thus, the proof is completed.

Theorem 4.1. The solutions of Equation (1.1) are bounded.
Proof. Let be a solution of Equation (1.1). We see from Equation (1.1) that
On the other hand, we see that the change of variables
transforms Equation (1.1) to the following form:
Hence, we obtain
It follows that
Thus we obtain
From (4.1) and (4.2) we see that
Therefore every solution of Equation (1.1) is bounded.
5. Global Stability of Equation (1.1)
Our aim in this section we investigate the global asymptotic stability of Equation (1.1).
Theorem 5.1. If then the equilibrium point of Equation (1.1) is global attractor.
Proof. Let be a function defined by

Suppose that is a solution of the system
Then from Equation (2.1), we see that
It follows by Theorem (1.1) that is a global attractor of Equation (1.1) and then the proof is complete.
