1. Introduction
Recently there has been a great interest in studying difference equations and systems, and quite a lot of papers about the behavior of positive solutions of system of difference equation. We can read references [1-10].

Motivated by systems above, we introduce the symmetrical system:
(9)
with parameter, the initial conditions, for, and is a positive integer. We can easily get the system (9) has the unique positive equilibrium.
There are two cases we need to consider:
1) If the initial conditions in the system (9) for, then for all, thus, the system (9) reduces to the difference equation
which was studied by El-owaidy in [11].
2) If for, then the system (9) is similar to the system in [8]. We study the system (9) basing on this condition in this paper.
In this paper, we try to give some results of the system (9) by using the methods in [8]. We consider the following cases of, and.
2. The Case 0 < A < 1
In this section, we give the asymptotic behavior of positive solution to the system (9).
Theorem 2.1. Suppose and is an arbitrary positive solution of the system (9). Then the following statements hold.
1) If k is odd, and, , , for, then
2) If is odd, and, , , for, then
3) If k is even, we can not get some useful results.
Proof: 1) Obviously, we can have
By introduction, we can get
So for,
By limiting the inequality above, we can get
. Similarly, we can also get.
Taking limits on the both sides of the following two equations
we can obtain,.
The proof of 2) is similar, so we omit it.
3. The Case A = 1
In this section, we try to get the boundedness, persistence, and periodicity of positive solutions of the system (9).
Theorem 3.1. Suppose A = 1. Then every positive solution of the system (9) is bounded and persists.
Proof. is a positive solution of the system (9).
Obviously, for. So we can get
where, ,
, for.
Then we can obtain
By introduction, we have
(10)
Hence, we complete the proof.
Theorem 3.2. Suppose A = 1, is a positive solution of the system (9). Then
Proof: By (10), we can get
By system (9), we can have
which implies
Hence, we can obtain
which can be changed into
Obviously, , we complete the proof.
Theorem 3.3. Suppose.
1) If is odd, then every positive solution of the system (9) with prime period two takes the form
(11)
or
(12)
with.
2) If is even, there do not exist positive nontrival solution of the system (9) with prime period two.
Proof: 1) As k is odd.
We set is the solution of the system (9) with prime period two. Then there are four positive number such that
If, by the system (9) we can get, which is contradiction with the condition, hence. Similarly, we can get. Then we obtain
From Theorem 3.2, we can get
Next, we consider the following possibilities:
Case 1: Either(I) A < C and B < D or (II) A > C and B > D. Then A = B, C = D.
Case 2: Either(I) A < C and B > D or (II) A > C and B < D. Then A = D, B = C.
Therefore by the system (9), we can get 1) holds.
2) Obviously, if k is even, the system (9) just has trival solution with prime period two.
We complete the proof.
4. The Case A > 1
Theorem 4.1. Suppose A > 1. Then every positive solution of the system (9) is bounded and persists.
Proof. Let be a positive solution of the system (9). Obviously, , , for. So we can get
where, ,
, for. Then we can obtain
By introduction, we have
(13)
We complete the proof.
Theorem 4.2. Suppose A > 1. Then every positive solution of the system (9) converges to the equilibrium as.
Proof: By (13), we can get
By system (9), we can have
which imply
By the condition, we can get
Besides, and, so we can get
and
i.e.
we complete the proof.
