Connecting wired speakers

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to connect wired speakers to my HP Pavilion.  I have 3 rear speaker connections, (1) Microphone connector or Center/Subwoofer out, (2) Front speaker connector (to front powered speakers or headphones), and (3) Line in Rear speakers out.  Which ports do I use for 2 speakers (both wired to the same port or separately ?), and what size jack plug do I need ?
