We consider the boundary value problem with nonhomogeneous three-point boundary condition Sufficient conditions are obtained for the existence and uniqueness of a positive solution. The dependence of the solution on the parameter $\lambda$ is also studied. This work extends and improves some recent results in the literature on the above problem, especially those in the paper [L. Kong, D. Piao, and L. Wang, Positive solutions for third order boundary value problems with $p$-Laplacian, Result. Math. 55 (2009) 111{128].
