We study the global asymptotic behavior of the positive solutions of the system of rational difference equations xn+1=f(xn,ynk),yn+1=f(yn,xnk), n=0,1,2,, under appropriate assumptions, where k{1,2,} and the initial values xk,xk+1,,x0,yk,yk+1,,y0(0,+). We give sufficient conditions under which every positive solution of this equation converges to a positive equilibrium. The main theorem in [1] is included in our result.
