If you want to know the page on which a figure is placed or a section
begins (for writing statements like See Figure 1 on page 12'), you can use
\pageref{key}. E.g., you can use

---begin code---
\begin{figure}
...
\caption{A Typical figure}\label{fig:typical}
\end{figure}

In Fig.~\ref{fig:typical} on p.~\pageref{fig:typical}, we see the growth of
gnus in Gnuland.

---end code---

Any key used in \label can be referred to by \ref and \pageref.

With regards
Manoj.
