```a = .2; b = .1; c = .9; d = .49;

n=10; (* reduced from 50 for example *)

initial={2,5};

f[{x_, y_}] := {(a*x + b*y)/c*x,
d*x*y}

data = NestList[f, initial, n];

ListLinePlot[Transpose[data]]

How to find x_(n+1)=(a*x_n+b*y_n)/c*x_n , y_(n+1)=d*x_n*y_n using mathematica?
I want to find a list of x and y when n=1,2,...,50
so I defined the function as f[{x_,y_}]:={a*x_n+b*y_n)/c*x_n,d*x_n*y_... }
and then use the function NestList[f,{2,5},50] with initial value of x is 2 and y is 5
with this, I got the list of 50 values of (x,y).
The problem is I want to plot graphs of x against n and y against n, n from 1 to 50 because I want to see what happened if n goes to infinity. But if use the method I just mentioned, I can only plot x against y.
So do anyone have a clever method??
Btw...a,b,c and d are constants and given and x_n is supposed to be x (subscript n)...same case with x_(n+1) and the others
