2. x = grams of ice

x times heat of fusion of water in cal/gram = grams of water * specific heat of water in cal/deg gm * (25-5)

------------
That assumes that the ice is separated from the water. If they mix then the ice not only has to melt but also be raised from 0 to 5. Then:

x = grams of ice

x times heat of fusion of water in cal/gram + x *specific heat of water * (5-0) = grams of water * specific heat of water in cal/deg gm * (25-5)
