We analytically establish the conditions for the existence of at least two or three positive solutions in the generalized m-point boundary value problem for the p-Laplacian dynamic equations on time scales by means of the Avery-Henderson fixed point theorem and the five functionals fixed point theorem. Furthermore, we illustrate the possible application of our analytical results with a concrete and nontrivial dynamic equation on specific time scales.
