If I'm not wrong, you do not have to cite it twice on the same paragraph. I would cite it at the end of the paragraph. - if you are citing other things in between, I wold cite it both times on the paragraph.

How do you cite a paragraph that has both quotes and paraphrasing all from the same source?

When a source states something, whether a word, phrase, or whole paragraph, this gets double quotes. If the quoted material already has double quotes around a word or phrase, change those to single quotes. But make sure you apply your double quotes around the entire paragraph and cite the source(s).

How do you site page and paragraph numbers?

I use the MLA system of citing. To cite a page # you can do it like this : write your sentence that you have quoted, summarised etc. then put the author's last name followed by the page number in brackets after it. e.g. Okonkwo was deeply grieved (Achebe 129). You can also use the author's last name in a sentence then put the page number in brackets at the end of it. Achebe writes that Okonkwo was deeply grieved (129). To cite a paragraph, you follow the same method but instead of the page number you say: author name or essay name if no title then par. # in brackets. You must cite the full bibliography on a "Works Cited page at the end. We encounter the Igbo people at a watershed moment in their history and culture (Smith par. 1).
