Page numbering for advanced students, MS Word for Mac [SOLVED]

Hey all, got a nice issue going on. I typed up my final for a class and I need to do some fancy page numbering. Here's how its set up

Page 1 - Cover Sheet
Page 2 - Question 1 restated
Page 3-11 - Text
Page 12 - References
Page 13 - Question 2 restated
Page 14-22 - Text
Page 23 References

What I need to do is skip pages 2 and 13. I'm trying to get my head around section breaks in the Mac version of word but I just can't get it to work. I'm essentially numbering Page 1, skipping page 2, and starting with "2" on page 3, then skipping page 13 like I did for 2.

Thoughts? Outright solutions? I feel like a dope after typing 20 some pages for a masters class and failing at formatting.

    god , this brings back nightmares from my dissertation. you need to do it with section breaks. and then have each new section start with page whatever rather than continue from previous. there is an option for it buried somewhere in the options; good luck finding it.

    getting it to work smoovely was aggravating to say the least. I think i made a post on this around may or june 2009.

    What version of Word are you using? The newest one (2011) is quite different from all previous ones.
