In what situations would you need to calculate the limiting reagent of a chemical reaction?

If you have 2 or more reactants and their ratio is not equal to the ratio of the stoichiometric coefficients.

If you ever are given two reactants that form a product and the answer to the question is dependent on how much the reaction proceeds, you should calculate the limiting reagent.

If the chemical reaction depends on the yield of product, or you are given a certain amount of reactants to work with.

when you are given two or more reactants, it's a safe bet to calculate the limiting reagent
