# Problem with appendix numbering [closed]

I have looked all questions about appendix but I could not solve my problem. I am writing my thesis, composed of three chapters. In one chapter, I have an appendix. The problem is that I could not numbering it correctly. For example, I get this for chapter 3 in the Contents:

...

3 The chapter three

3.1 Subsection of chapter 3

...

3.6 Conclusion

.1 Appendix

.1.1 The solution

But I want:

...

3.6 Conclusion

3.A Appendix

3.A.1 The solution

I am using this line in the main.tex file:

\usepackage[titletoc,title,header]{appendix}


Inside the chapter 3 tex file I have this:

\begin{appendices}
\section{Appendix}
\subsection{The solution}

Blah Blah...

\end{appendices}

• Welcome to TeX SX! Could you post a minimal working example reproduing your problem? – Bernard Oct 23 '18 at 12:11
• You want \begin{subappendices} ,,, \end{subappendices} – John Kormylo Oct 23 '18 at 14:10
• Thanks Jonh. It's worked. But how to get rid of the word "Appendix" before the chapter number (Appendix 3.A Appendix)? – FML Oct 23 '18 at 14:17
• That is what the [titletoc] option does (add Appendix to the TOC). Just remove it. You know all these packages come with manuals? – John Kormylo Oct 24 '18 at 14:22
