Can the economists out there kindly explain how to get the answer. Thanks

In a hypothetical economy, consumers consume two goods - Good 1 and Good 2. Assume that the utility function of a consumer is given by U=Q1Q2 (Qi referring to amount of consumption of the good), Income (Y) of the consumer=100; prices of the goods P1=2 and P2=5. Derive the quantity of consumption of each good by the consumer at equilibrium.
