Percentage of Cis Isomer at Equilibrium

Consider the trans-to-cis isomerization of 1,2-dichloroethylene. If the Gibbs energy of formation is 27.34 and 22.11 kJ / mol for the trans and cis isomers, respectively, what is the percent of cis isomer present at equilibrium? You may ignore activity corrections.
