I have a very simple question, but wasn't able to find the answer on Internet. In my paper, I have two theorems: Theorem 1 and Theorem 2. However, the second theorem's number I can't put equal to 2. How continue theorems numbering?

This is Theorem 1

This is Theorem 2

1 Answer 1


The \newtheorem declaration defines a new type of theorem, not a new statement.

In the document you use instances of the declared type.




This will be theorem 1.

This will be theorem 2.
