We investigate the periodic nature of solutions of a "max-type" difference equation sometimes referred to as the "Lyness max" equation. The equation we consider is where is a positive real parameter, , and such that and are positive rational numbers. The results in this paper answer the Open Problem of Grove and Ladas (2005).
