Could you be referring to part A of problem 9? If so, I believe this is because as a functional group alcohol has first priority over substituents and cycloalkanes. Thus, in order to start numbering at the functional group, cycloheptane must be treated as a substituent to the 3rd carbon in the chain alcohol is a part of. Hope this makes sense!
