We study a system of second-order dynamic equations on time scales , , satisfying four kinds of different multipoint boundary value conditions, is continuous and semipositone. We derive an interval of such that any lying in this interval, the semipositone coupled boundary value problem has multiple positive solutions. The arguments are based upon fixed-point theorems in a cone.
