Determine the final state when 20 g of 0 degree C ice and 10 g of 100 degree C steam are mixed together in an insulated container

2. Relevant equations

Q=mc(delta)T

Q=mL (L = latent heat)

3. The attempt at a solution

So, I know that I should set the heat change in ice equal to the heat change in steam, but how do I know what the heat changes are (including latent heat) if I don't know what the final state is?
