Our goal in this paper is to investigate the global asymptotic stability of the hyperbolic equilibrium solution of the second order rational difference equation , , where the parameters and , , , , are positive real numbers and the initial conditions are nonnegative real numbers such that . In particular, we solve Conjecture 5.201.1 proposed by Camouzis and Ladas in their book (2008) which appeared previously in Conjecture 11.4.2 in Kulenović and Ladas monograph (2002).
