Homework Help: Physics Please someone help please

A 34 g glass thermometer reads 21.6C before it is placed in 135 mL of water. When the water and thermometer come to equilibrium, the thermometer reads 38.7C. What was the original temperature of the water?

-.135(4186)(Tf-38.7)=.034(840)(Tf-21.6)
=-565.11Tf+21869.752=28.56Tf-616.896
solve for Tf
Tf= 37.88 degree celcius but its wrong please help!

thank you
