Electromagnetism: Calculate how many turns in the output coil of a transformer

The generator at a power plant produces AC at 24,000 Volts. A transformer steps this up to 345,000 Volts for transmission over power lines. If there are 2,000 turns of wire in the input coil of the transformer, how many turns must there be in the output coil.
