### Customize numbering in the theorem environment

Hi community,

I know similar topics exist, but unfortunately none could solve the problem.
I would like to number the assumptions (created by the newtheorem environment) in my article by A1, A2, etc. That is, I have the command:

\newtheorem{assump}{Assumption}\begin{article} \begin{assump}This assumption is supposed to be labelled "Assumption A1".\end{assump}

Any ideas how this can be achieved?

Thanks!

You can redefine \theassump

\newtheorem{assump}{Assumption}\renewcommand\theassump{A\arabic{assump}}

Best regards
Elke
