Let O(n) and C(n) be the semigroup of all order-preserving transformations and of all order-preserving and order-decreasing transformations on the finite set X(n) = {1,2, ..., n}, respectively. Let Fix(alpha) = {x is an element of X(n) : x alpha = x} for any transformation alpha. In this paper; for any Y subset of X(n), we find the cardinalities of the sets O(n,Y) = {alpha is an element of O(n) : Fix(alpha) = Y} and C(n,Y) = {alpha is an element of C(n) : Fix(alpha) = Y}. Moreover; we find the numbers of transformations of O(n) and C(n) with r fixed points.
