# Change numbering of equations in LyX

I have just tried to use LyX, but I get some trouble when I numbered equations.

For example: when I number my equation, on screen appear like this:

``````            a=b   (0.1)
``````

How can I drop number 0 so that it displays like this:

``````            a=b    (1)
``````

You may have switched around some document classes that added a specific numbering module which updates this numbering.

Under Document > Settings... > Modules, remove (or delete) the Number Equations by Section module:

Alternatively, if this fails, you can add the following Document > Settings... > Local Layout:

``````Format 60
