I have the following latex code which produces the error mentioned in the title:


\left( \begin{array}{c}
\end{array} \right)


If I remove the numberwithin command and add the flexisym package but remove the amsmath package, it runs fine. Also, if I remove the numberwithin command and add the flexisym package and amsmath package, I get an error saying,"amsmath.sty: Latex error or: command \dfrac already defined". Can someone please point out the mistake due to which I get these errors? I somehow need the numberwithin command to be working with arrays.

  • What's \numberwithin supposed to do? It's completely misplaced.

  • What are you trying to use \numberwithin for? Its purpose is to affect the output of counters, so I can't see what you want it to do. Jan 27, 2016 at 23:20
  • Based on your feedback, I think the numberwithin is unnecessary. I actually have other arrays before and after this array. So, I wanted this equation to also be numbered. But I guess I can use \begin{eqnarray} for that purpose. Thanks. Jan 27, 2016 at 23:41
  • not eqnarray, equation but also why are you using \textrm with nested $ mathematics and then \textprime the markup is exceedingly weird. Jan 27, 2016 at 23:44
