Homework Help: Chemistry

Complete combustion of a sample of propane produced 2.641g of carbon dioxide and 1.442g of water as the only products. Find the empirical formula of propane.

I have already calculated the number of moles for both water and carbon dioxide. I also know that propane is only carbon and hydrogen, but I am not exactly sure where to go from here.
