is it mean the Q of temperature from 75 to 60^c is equal to the Q of 25 to 60^C ??

thank

Since we are dealing with water of a constant heat capacity, it's not the complicated. You can treat it as a "mixture" problem. If you have x cm 3 of 25 degree water, the heat is proportional to 25x. If you have y cm3 of 75 degree water, the heat is proportional to 75y. Mixing those together you have x+ y cm3 of water that you want to be 60 degrees so the mixture's hear is proportional to 60(x+y). You want 25x+ 75y= 60(x+y). Of course, that's one equation in two unknowns because you didn't say how much of the 25 degree water you had or how much water you wanted to end up with.
