I somehow keep getting the answer wrong to this when I try to find Tf. I thought I just set the two q=mcdeltaT equations together, but I'm getting a wrong answer. Any ideas?

Did you set the negative q of copper to the positive q of water? The copper is losing heat so you have to account for that by putting -q.

Make sure to put a negative for the exothermic reaction (this is a common mistake that I usually forget)
