    Make sure you are consistent in units. Also remember to include signs in your calculations to indicate gain/loss of energy.

    Hope this helps

    Firstly just change the 232 kJ into joules so you that have 232000 J.

    q = mc delta t
    232000 = 10 * 4200 * delta t
    delta t = 232000/10*4200
    delta t = 232000/42000
    delta t = 5.5
