    Equations and theorems numbered continuously within a chapter.

    I want to have a continuous sharing of numbering for the equations AND the theorems in a chapter. I am using \documentclass{book}. For example, in chapter 2, I wish to get, say
    Theorem 2.1
    (equation numbered) (2.2)
    Theorem 2.3 etc.

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: Equations and theorems numbered continuously within a chapter.

    I was able to do it this way finally.

    \numberwithin{equation}{chapter}
    \newtheorem{theorem}[equation]{Theorem}
    \newtheorem{lemma}[equation]{Lemma} , etc

    Thanks for everyone who read this post and thought about it.
