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 rational difference equations and systems of difference equations. Although difference equations are very simple in form, it is extremely difficult to understand thoroughly the behaviors of their solutions. (see [1–11] and the references cited therein).
which can be considered as a natural generalizations of (1.8).
From Lemma 1.1 we see that the rests for of the numbers for obtained by dividing the numbers by , are mutually different, they are contained in the set , make a permutation of the ordered set , and finally is the first number of the form such that
In this section, we formulate and prove the main results in this paper.
