By using the coincidence degree theory, we consider the following 2π‘š-point boundary value problem for fractional differential equation 𝐷𝛼0+𝑒(𝑑)=𝑓(𝑑,𝑒(𝑑),π·π›Όβˆ’10+𝑒(𝑑),π·π›Όβˆ’20+𝑒(𝑑))+𝑒(𝑑), 0<𝑑<1, 𝐼3βˆ’π›Ό0+𝑒(𝑑)|𝑑=0=0,π·π›Όβˆ’20+βˆ‘π‘’(1)=π‘šβˆ’2𝑖=1π‘Žπ‘–π·π›Όβˆ’20+𝑒(πœ‰π‘–βˆ‘),𝑒(1)=π‘šβˆ’2𝑖=1𝑏𝑖𝑒(πœ‚π‘–), where 2<𝛼≀3,𝐷𝛼0+ and 𝐼𝛼0+ are the standard Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative and fractional integral, respectively. A new result on the existence of solutions for above fractional boundary value problem is obtained.
