We are using the enumerate in the following form




Which produces out-put as C_1, C_2, ...

But we want the out-put as C_8, C_9, ...

How can we do it?

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

    I have deleted my answer since Guido beat me to it. But you can improve your label by deleting spurious commands and braces. With the step option as mentioned by Guido, you can write \begin{enumerate}[leftmargin=*,label=$\textbf{C}_\arabic*$.,start=8].

to continue the numbering from a previous list you can add resume in the options. To set the starting number add the option start=<integer> (see section 3.4 of the enumitem manual, texdoc enumitem)
