I'm a conceptual difficulty with this simple problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In an insulated container, 0.800 kg of water at 40.0 degrees centigrade is mixed with 0.500 kg of ice at -15.0 degrees centigrade. Find the final temperature [itex]T_\mathrm{f}[/itex] of the system. The freezing point of water is 0 degrees centigrade.

I need to know the phases present at equilibrium in order to calculate the final temperature, but these are not given.
