The main objective of this paper is to study the boundedness character, the periodic character, the convergence, and the global stability of the positive solutions of the difference equation xn+1=(A+i=0kαixni)/(B+i=0kβixni),n=0,1,2,, where A,B,αi,βi and the initial conditions xk,...,x1,x0 are arbitrary positive real numbers, while k is a positive integer number.
