Yes you're right! Once you figure out which reactant is limiting, that is the information which will determine how much product is produced. Make sure to keep the ratio between the limiting reactant and product in mind too when double checking your work. I hope that helped!
Exactly what you said, the limiting reagent or limiting reactant determines how much of the products are made because if a reaction runs out of any reactant, the amount of product is limited as a result. And the theoretical yield is the maximum amount of product that can be produced calculated with the limiting reagent.
