Suppose I have the following bibliography set up in my LaTeX document.

\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{Cite1}
Peter Jackson
\textit{Some random article name}.
Journal name,\textbf{29}, p339-349, 1968.
\end{thebibliography}

I now wish to cite this reference, for example

Hello \cite{Cite1}

which then displays as

Hello [1]  

I however, want to include in this specific citation that this comes from page 342, i.e I want to display something like

Hello [1, pg. 342]

How can I go about doing that?

    Just write \cite[pg. 342]{Cite1}. – Mensch Feb 11 '16 at 20:45

Just add [pg. 342] as option to the command \cite: \cite[pg. 342]{Cite1}.

Please see the following MWE (See the code changing I did, marked with <======):

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\begin{document}

Hello \cite{Cite1} 

Hello \cite[pg. 342]{Cite1} % <=========================================

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{Cite1}
Peter Jackson
\textit{Some random article name}.
Journal name,\textbf{29}, p339-349, 1968.
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}

and the resulting pdf:
