Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Total copies=96 copies

Copies sold yesterday=96*1/6=16 copies

Remaining copies=96-16=80 copies

Copies sold today=80*1/8=10 copies

Copies left=80-10=70 copies

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
