A proton that has a mass m and is moving at 250 m/s in the + direction undergoes a head-on elastic collision with a stationary oxygen nucleus of mass 16m. Find the velocities of the proton and the oxygen nucleus after the collision

i know i have to consider that both momentum and KE are conserved but i dont know what to do (how to do it)
