We give conditions on $f(y)$ which guarantee that the boundary value problem $T_ny(x) = f(y(x))$, 0 < $x$ < $A$, $y^(2j)$(0) = 0 = $y^(2j+1)(A)$, $j$ = 0, 1,... , $n$-1, where $T_n$ is the $n$th iterate of the operator $Ty(x)$ = -$(1)/( w(x))$ $(p(x)y'(x))'$, have a prescribed number of multiple positive solutions. Our main tool is a fixed point theorem of Krasnosel’skiĭ.
