You want to apply the properties identified in both the Question scheme and Answer scheme as defined on Schema.org.
In particular and at minimum, use the following attributes/properties:
itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Question" on the DOM element wrapping entire set of question & answer content
itemprop="name" (typically on an H1) wrapping the individual question
itemprop="acceptedAnswer" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Answer" on the DOM element wrapping the accepted answer
itemprop="suggestedAnswer" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Answer" on the DOM element wrapping other answers
You may also (optionally) want to consider attributing questions and answers to individual people/users, using the Person scheme.
Below are screenshots of one of the examples from schema.org for quick reference.
