A student places 100 mL of tap water in a beaker and uses both a thermometer and a temperature probe to measure temperature. The temperature of the water as measured by the thermometer is 27.7 C. The temperature of the water as measured by the temperature probe is 24.9 C. The student then places 100 mL of hot water into another beaker. If the temperature of this water is 72.6 C as measured by the temperature probe, what is the temperature of this water measured by the thermometer?

Wouldn't it be
(27.7/24.9) = (x/72.6)
