What is the thrust of the turbofan engine, Physics

A modern turbofan engine in a commercial jet takes in air, part of which passes through the compressors, combustion chambers, and turbine, and the rest of which bypasses the compressor and is accelerated by the fans. The mass flow rate of bypass air to the mass flow rate through the compressor-combustor-turbine path is called the "bypass ratio". The total flow rate of air entering a turbofan is 300 kg/s with a velocity of 300 m/s. The engine has a bypass ratio of 2.5. The bypass air exits at 600 m/s, whereas the air through the compressor-combustor-turbine path exits at 1000 m/s. What is the thrust of the turbofan engine? Show your control volume and application of momentum equation.
