• In this paper, we investigate the existence criteria of at least one positive solution to the three-point boundary value problems with coupled system of Riemann-Liouville type nonlinear fractional order differential equations. The analysis of this study is based on the well-known Schauder's fixed point theorem. Some new existence and multiplicity results for coupled system of Riemann-Liouville type nonlinear fractional order differential equation with three-point boundary value conditions are obtained.
