This paper is concerned with the behavior of solution of the nonlinear difference equation 𝑥 𝑛 + 1 = 𝑎 𝑥 𝑛 1 + 𝑏 𝑥 𝑛 𝑥 𝑛 1 / ( 𝑐 𝑥 𝑛 + 𝑑 𝑥 𝑛 2 ) , 𝑛 = 0 , 1 , , where the initial conditions 𝑥 2 , 𝑥 1 , 𝑥 0 are arbitrary positive real numbers and 𝑎 , 𝑏 , 𝑐 , 𝑑 are positive constants. Also, we give specific form of the solution of four special cases of this equation.
