    Calculate how much of A gets dyed and how much B gets dyed (You have to round down to the lowest whole number because fractional amounts will not count as completed, for example 1.7 is still 1). A = 31 B = 43 do the same for drying so A = 28 B = 56. You then take the least of the two pairs so the lesser of the two for A is 28 and the lesser for B is 43. So there are 28 completed A's and 43 completed B's.
