This paper studies the dynamic behavior of the positive solutions to the difference equation xn=A+xnkp/xn1r, n=1,2,, where A,p, and r are positive real numbers, and the initial conditions are arbitrary positive numbers. We establish some results regarding the stability and oscillation character of this equation for p(0,1).
