In this paper we study the boundedness, the persistence, the attractivity and the stability of the positive solutions of the nonlinear difference equation xn+1=α+(xn1p/xnq), n=0,1,, where α,p,q(0,) and x1,x0(0,). Moreover we investigate the existence of a prime two periodic solution of the above equation and we find solutions which converge to this periodic solution.
