Consider the difference equation ,  , where all parameters ,  , and the initial conditions ,   are nonnegative real numbers. We investigate the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of the considered equation. We give easy-to-check conditions for the global stability and global asymptotic stability of the zero or positive equilibrium of this equation.
