A 75 gram ice cube at 0 degrees Celcius is placed in 825 grams of water at 25 degrees C. What is the final temperature of the mixture?

2. Relevant equations

What is the best formula to use in this question?

3. The attempt at a solutionI have attempted this problem multiple times. The last time I plugged in these variables:

(75g)(2.108kJ/kg-k)(T2-0)=(825g)(4.184J/g*degrees C)(T2-25 degrees C)

The answer is supposed to be 16 degrees C. I can't seem to figure this one out. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Am I missing variables?
