Basically my textbook says after it explains what the limiting reagent is and how to find.
That "calculations must be based on the limiting reagent"
I really dont get what that means. I think it means that the amount product formed is due to the limiting reagent?
Please help me

It means that when you calculate the amount of product which will form, you have to base it on whichever reaction will limit the reaction. So if for example you were making ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen:
N2 + 3H2 --> 2NH3
And you have:
You would calculate the amount of product formed based on the amount of hydrogen, as that's the limiting reagent.

Oh so basically the amount of product formed is based on the amount limiting reagent?
