Answer

If your quotation/paraphrase breaks across pages, use "pp." for "pages" in your in-text citation: (Lastname, year, pp. 4-5). Avoid the temptation to provide a list of locations for information within a text - that is, if the information appears more than once in a text, you don't need to show every instance of that information in your citation. Instead, provide the location for the specific text you quoted or paraphrased, which in most cases will be where the information was most thoroughly explained.
