#### Abstract

#### 1. Introduction

Our aim in this paper is to find the solutions form for the following systems of rational difference equations: with nonzero real numbers initial conditions and then investigate the obtained solutions.

Difference equations appear naturally as discrete analogues and as numerical solutions of differential and delay differential equations having applications in biology, ecology, economy, physics, and so on. So, recently there has been an increasing interest in the study of qualitative analysis of scalar rational difference equations and systems of rational difference equations. Although difference equations are very simple in form, it is extremely difficult to understand thoroughly the behaviors of their solutions. See [1–7] and the references cited therein.

The periodicity of the positive solutions for the following system of rational difference equations was studied by Cinar et al. [8].

Özban [9] has studied the positive solutions for the following system: The behavior of the positive solutions for the following system has been studied by Kurbanlı et al. [10].

Touafek and Elsayed [11] studied the periodicity and gave the form of the solutions for the following systems: Yalcinkaya [12] investigated the sufficient condition for the global asymptotic stability for the following system of difference equations: Yang [13] investigated the positive solutions for the system Clark et al. [14, 15] investigate the global asymptotic stability of the following difference equations: Camouzis and Papaschinopoulos [16] studied the global asymptotic behavior of the positive solutions of the system of rational difference equations as follows:
