In this paper, the exact number of pseudo-symmetric positive solutions is obtained for a class of three-point boundary value problems with one-dimensional p-Laplacian. The interesting point is that the nonlinearity f is general form: f(u)=λ g(u)+h(u). Meanwhile, some properties of the solutions are given in details. The arguments are based upon a quadrature method.
