A restaurant currently has 144 bags of salt, and each bag hold 320 ounces. The salt is used to refill any empty 7-ounce salt shakers. 

Using the 144 bags, how many salt shakers will the restaurant need to fill before needing to fill more salt?

1 bag of salt = 320 ounces

therefore 144 bags of salt = 144 * 320 ounces = 46,080 ounces

7 ounces of salt is used to refill a 7-ounce salt shaker.

therefore 46,080 ounces of salt could refill = 46,080 / 7 = 6582 shakers completely.

note- 6582.86 is rounded down to arrive at complete refills.
