What's the difference between "part 1 of 2" vs "part 1 out of 2"? Are they both correct and synonymous, the latter form being less often used? I am wondering the same when part is replaced by page.

    From what I've seen, the "out" is only used when the part/page is viewed on its own, as a separate product or item. When they are kept together, both part and pages would not be listed as "out". – Victor Bazarov Oct 17 '15 at 22:00

From what I've seen, the "out" is only used when the part/page is viewed on its own, as a separate product or item. If (or when) they are kept together (like pages in a document, for instance), both parts and pages would not be listed with the "out", but only "page M of N" or "part Y of Z".
