I have a problem set that I want to type up.

In my section, i get numbers which is fine since I have 4 problems on my problem set. But each subsection is lettered on my problem set, so I would like my solution set to also match it.

Right now it turns into 1.1, 1.2 ...

Also when I select subsection and try to do a display type formula, it moves my section number in the middle too. If I press enter on it it just removes the subsection. What to do? thanks

I don't know whether LyX has any buttons for this type of thing, but for the first part of your question, you can add


to the preamble (under Document > Settings). If you have chapters, you should add \thechapter. before \thesection.

I don't understand your second question: When I add a display math under a subsection heading everything works fine (and it obviously fails to compile when I add it inside a subsection heading). I might be missing something though—I have never actually used LyX.
