We deal with the solutions of the systems of the difference equations 𝑥 𝑛 + 1 = 1 / 𝑥 𝑛 𝑝 𝑦 𝑛 𝑝 , 𝑦 𝑛 + 1 = 𝑥 𝑛 𝑝 𝑦 𝑛 𝑝 / 𝑥 𝑛 𝑞 𝑦 𝑛 𝑞 , and 𝑥 𝑛 + 1 = 1 / 𝑥 𝑛 𝑝 𝑦 𝑛 𝑝 𝑧 𝑛 𝑝 , 𝑦 𝑛 + 1 = 𝑥 𝑛 𝑝 𝑦 𝑛 𝑝 𝑧 𝑛 𝑝 / 𝑥 𝑛 𝑞 𝑦 𝑛 𝑞 𝑧 𝑛 𝑞 , 𝑧 𝑛 + 1 = 𝑥 𝑛 𝑞 𝑦 𝑛 𝑞 𝑧 𝑛 𝑞 / 𝑥 𝑛 𝑟 𝑦 𝑛 𝑟 𝑧 𝑛 𝑟 , with a nonzero real numbers initial conditions. Also, the periodicity of the general system of 𝑘 variables will be considered.
