I keep forgetting how to do this, so here’s a quick post that shows how to start a LaTeX enumerate environment with a different number.

By default enumerate environments start counting from 1 (obviously). To start with a different number you simply need to change the value of a counter:

\begin{enumerate} \setcounter{enumi}{2} \item This will be item 3 \item Item 4 will be here \end{enumerate}

If you have nested enumerate environments, the counters are enumii and enumiii.
