Y-intercept is the point where x=0. From the given function, P=(6000-400x)*(x-2) we substitute x=0 to get P=(6000-400(0))*(0-2) =6000*(-2) =-12000 It also means the loss incurred when the manufacturer gives the paper away ("selling" at a price of x=\$0 per ream).

Fermat's little theorem says if p is prime, and p does not divide a, then a^(p-1)≡1 mod p. Here we put p=61, therefore 61 does not divide a=8. Hence 8^(61-1)≡1 (mod 61), or 8^(60)≡1 (mod 61). Recall the multiplication rule of modulus arithmetic, 8^120&...

Stoichiometry
Yes, the limiting reactant is CaCl2. Since it is a reactant, there is no new CaCl2 formed... unless you meant something else. The same idea extends to products. The overall molecular ratios are 1:1:1:2. So you can calculate amounts of products formed using the ratio.
