Find the fuel consumption

In the an ideal turbo jet, the engine is designed such that the turbine work is divided equally between the compressor and the propeller. The gas from the turbine discharges to a nozzle for additional thrust. Consider such an engine where the air enters the diffuser at 200 m/s, 40 kPa, 240 K, and a flow rate of 40 kg/s. The compressor ratio is 11, and the turbine inlet temperature is 1200 K. The fuel used as a heating value of 43,000 kj/kg.
