# Control exact position of page number

I have page number for some first few pages in roman style (\pagenumbering{roman}) and the rest arabic (\pagenumber{arabic}).

Now it need to position them such that:

• page number should be 3/4 of an inch from the bottom edge of the page.
• they should be flush with the right page margin.

I've tried

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\rfoot{\thepage}


but page numbers position in the middle of bottom page. Also, I don't know how to change the position of page number with respect to bottom of the page.

Thanks,

\documentclass[12pt,titlepage]{report}
\usepackage[
top    = 1in,
bottom = 0.75in,
left   = 1.25in,
right  = 1.25in,
showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}% clearsall

• Delete the lines \textheight=.. and \textwidth=.. That should all be done by the settings of geometry – user2478 Mar 2 '16 at 20:45
