Standard temperature and pressure question?

"You compare gas generated from a reaction using 4 antacid tablets with a reaction using 3 antacid tablets (assuming the tablets are the limiting reagent). At STP how do the volumes of the gases compare?"

What does this mean and how would you answer it? I don't get what it's asking

    Assuming the antacid tablets are the limiting reactants, a reaction with fixed amount of any other reactants in either reaction, the reaction with 3 tablets will produce less gas than the reaction with 4 tablets.
