Does anyone know why I end up with the wrong answer?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question is:

Determine the temperature change: 10 kg of water loses 232 kJ or heatQUOTE]

I went delta q is equal to m c delta t, the derived the equation delta t is equal to delta q divded by mc. I therefore did the math as 232 kJ divided by (10 kg times 4.2 x 10 ^3 j/kg C) and got 9.7 x 10 ^4, when the answer was supposed to be 5.5. Does any one know what I did wrong??

Thank you in advance
