how do I number pages

Writing a book - starting page 1 on page 10 can’t get it to work. writer shows I have 2 sets of page #s - the first is numerical starting at 1 the 2nd is in parenthesis staring on page 2 at 10 and I have no idea how this happened or how to fix it.

Page numbers are an attribute of page style. If you didn’t insert them yourself, edit your question (see link under it; don’t use an answer which is reserved for solutions) and attach (the paper clip button when you edit) your file for analysis.
