Solve the problem. A certain area of forest is populated by two species of animals, which scientists refer to as \( A \) and \( B \) for simplicity. The forest supplies two kinds of food, referred to as \( F _ { 1 } \) and \( F _ { 2 } \) . For one year, species A requires \( 1.4 \) units of \( F _ { 1 } \) and \( 1.1 \) units of \( F _ { 2 } \) . Species \( B \) requires \( 2.4 \) units of \( F _ { 1 } \) and \( 1.8 \) units of \( F _ { 2 } \) . The forest can normally supply at most \( 987 \) units of \( F _ { 1 } \) and \( 495 \) units of \( F _ { 2 } \) per year. What is the maximum total number of these animals that the forest can support?
