Question

Three liquids are at temperatures of 10°C, 20°C, and 30°C, respectively. Equal masses of the first two liquids are mixed, and the equilibrium temperature is 17°C. Equal masses of the second and third are then mixed, and the equilibrium temperature is 28°C. Find the equilibrium temperature when equal masses of the first and third are mixed.
