What I'm showing you here is really a stripped-down example of the real thing, which is the solutions manual to a textbook. Moreover, rather than manually maintaining separate files for the text and the solutions manual, we're using the "answers" package to generate the solutions manual file automatically, which adds a bit more indirection to the stew. So going back and fixing things manually would be a tedious, error-prone solution, which would break if we were to include additional exercises.

In the preamble insert this
Replace your definition of solution with
This will keep the header with the start of the table together
