    to , at, of, in

    Hi,

    1- Please open your books to page 6.
    2- Please open your books at page 6.

    I have learnt that the first two sentences are OK in American and British English, but I would like to ask if the sentences I have written below are OK to you or not.

    3- Please open the 6th page of your books.
    4- Please open the 6th page in your books.
    5- Please open the 6th page at your books.

    Thanks.

    They are unnatural, so to me, they are not 'OK'.

    However, we can also simply say 'open page 6' or 'turn to page 6', is that right?

    You can say "Turn to page six". Not "open page six".
