    are you using amsmath? if so, see p.10, section 3.11.3 of the user's guide (`texdoc amsmath). it tells how to give a reference to the "parent" number of subequations. Nov 3 '16 at 20:19

If you add a label to the same line as \begin{subequations} you can reference that lable.

    A slight nuance: the parent "label" doesn't have to be on the same line with \begin{subequations}. What's required is that the parent's \label be provided before some other counter (likely the equation counter) is incremented within the subequations environment.
