The library has 551,984 magazines. Each bin holds 8 magazines. How many bins does the library need to hold all of its magazines?

Answer 1

#68,998# bins

Knowing that the library has #551,984# magazines and each bin holds #8# magazines, to find the number of bins needed to hold all the magazines, you must divide #551,984color(white)(i)"magazines"# by #(8color(white)(i)"magazines")/"bin"#.

Thus:

#551,984color(white)(i)"magazines"-:(8color(white)(i)"magazines")/"bin"#

Recall that when you divide by a fraction, you take the reciprocal of the divisor and change the division sign to a multiplication sign.

#=551,984color(white)(i)"magazines"xx"bin"/(8color(white)(i)"magazines")#

Since the unit, "magazines," appears in the numerator and denominator as a pair, they cancel each other out.

#=551,984color(white)(i)color(red)cancelcolor(black)("magazines")xx"bin"/(8color(white)(i)color(red)cancelcolor(black)("magazines"))#
#=551,984xx"bin"/8#

Solve.

#=color(green)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)68,998color(white)(i)"bins"color(white)(a/a)|)))#

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
