Question concerning citations in a paragraph (MLA format). I have a paragraph that I have two different sources in. My first two sentences are one source, and my last 4 sentences are another source. My last 4 sentences also happen to be an internet source(no page number) so its (authors last name), how do i cite the last 4 sentences? Thanks in Advance.

I'm the APA guru here and this one seems tricky to the limited MLA knowledge I have. In APA you would use (Last, Date, para. #) for Internet sources. Example:
"Quote here" (Doe, 2011, para. 2).
Paraphrase here (Doe, 2011).
But honestly don't know if there si a similar rule for MLA, but I know who does . . .
Well i know that (Authors last name) will go at the end of the sentence, my question is more so do I put the (authors last name at the first of the last 4 sentences? and remove it from any after that?
In APA you would cite the last sentence not the first. Same would go for the earlier reference. Cite the second sentence not the first. The exception to this rule is if there are direct quotes in the passage. So using your description here is how it would be done in APA:
First sentence. Second sentence (Doe, 2011). "Third sentence, which is a direst quote" (Roe, 2011, para. 2). Fourth sentence. Fifth sentence. Sixth sentence (Roe, 2011).
I don't know if this is helpful at all but @Redwood_Girl should be on tomorrow and I have now alerted her twice to your question so she is likely to have an answer for you sometime tomorrow.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Okay, well, I am not very familiar with the citation of internet sources. I rarely used such sources in my own work (though that might be different today), and never taught it.
But here is what I see online.
For your Works Cited page, follow these guidelines --
For your accompanying in-text citations, follow the guideline on this page in the section "Citing Non-Print or Sources from the Internet" --
I hope that helps!
