# LaTeX Question

When I enumerate something:

1.

2.

...

How can I change the numbers? For instance, if I were doing textbook problems and I was assigned #1 and #3, how would I make #3 come right after #1?

Thank you.

you'd label them by hand since you aren't acutally enumerating these things in order.

the simplest option if you want nice indentation is to use the envorinment description, and each item is prefaced by \item[foo] which puts foo in bold type at the start of the item. that's much easier than resetting counters
