My house is 110 volt and has a red, white, black and a copper

This answer was rated:

My house is 110 volt and has a red, white, black and a copper wire. I am trying to install a bathroom fan/ light. The fan/ light unit has 2 black wires - one is marked fan connection the other light connection. It has 2 white wires - one is marked fan, the other light connection. The unit has 2 green wires that I assume are ground wires. How do I connect them to my red white black copper house wires?
