I don't know why I am getting two page numbers on the same page, one in the center and one on the right:


%setting the header
\fancyhead[LO,LE]{Mohammad Noorani Bakerally}
\fancyhead[RO,RE]{Pattern-Based Development}
The aim of the application is to create a Sushi plate and show its details.


Why does the one in the center still appear?

It's usually advised to clear the header/footer entirely. Hence the use of \fancyhf{}. – Werner Feb 18 '13 at 20:39
