We discuss the existence of solutions for the first-order multipoint BVPs on time scale : , , , where is a parameter, is a fixed number, , is continuous, is regressive and rd-continuous, , , , , and . For suitable , some existence, multiplicity, and nonexistence criteria of positive solutions are established by using well-known results from the fixed-point index.
