An internal explosion breaks an object, initially at rest, into two pieces, one of which has 1.6 times the mass of the other. If 25000 J is released in the explosion, how much kinetic energy does each piece acquire?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure where to begin.
