We are concerned with proving the existence of positive solutions of a nonlinear second-order four-point boundary value problem with a p-Laplacian operator on time scales. The proofs are based on the fixed point theorems concerning cones in a Banach space. Existence result for p-Laplacian boundary value problem is also given by the monotone method.
