Chemistry Level pending

The MO of the ground state of a heteronuclear diatomic molecule AB is $\psi_{mol} = C_{A} \phi^{A} + C_{B} \phi^{B}.$ If a bonding electron spends $$75.0$$ % of its time in an orbital $$\phi^{A}$$ on atom A and $$25.0$$ % of its time in $$\phi^{B}$$ on atom B, what are the values of $$C_{A}$$ and $$C_{B}$$?

Neglect the overlap of the two orbitals.
