#### Explanation:

To obtain the change in temperature, let's use the equation below:

In this question, heat has units of kJ, which does not match up with the units given in the image above. So what we can do first is convert kJ to J by multiplying that value of

Here are the variables that we know:

All we have to do is rearrange the equation to solve for

Now, we just plug in the known values:
