    Question parenthesis, two or more page numbers-source?

    Hi,
    I was trying to add multiple page numbers in parenthesis to refrence a book I’m citing quoted material from. I’m not finding this example in my Bedford hand book.
    It’s a book titled: Steven King From A to Z and
    The pages I’m referencing are 11 and 9. I’m not sure how to use the parenthesis when there are multiple pages in question?



    (King AtoZ 11 (9).)
    (King AtoZ (11) ; (9).)
    (King AtoZ (11) ; (9)).
    (King AtoZ 11-9).

    I use brackets [ ] for parentheses inside of parentheses.

    is that in MLA format though?

    I had to do a research paper. The assignment was;
    Explain how an author’s life affects his work. The problem is you can't state your views other then in your thesis and in your conclusion. The entire essay has to be either Summarize, Paraphrased, or Quoted.

    I get confused with where to put stuff sometimes. Like when you summarize or paraphrase something from a book, the rules seem to change depending on what stuff you have in the main body of your paragraphs. I think I just need to dig deeper in the hand book.
