    What are your thoughts on the question? Have you made an attempt?

    HINT: Think about the first law of thermodynamics -- the energy transferred from the hot water will be equal to the energy transferred to the cold water. Whatever this energy is, it should cause the hot and cold water to end up at the same temperature.
