Let's see if you can do that in your head, knowing that 4.18 joules is 1 calorie. (a good number to remember)

80 joules is therefore very close to 20 calories.

Since the specific heat of water is 1.0 calories per degree-gram, 20 calories is enough to heat 2 grams 10 degrees C.

If you start at 15 C, and add 10, what do you end up with for the temperature?
