The electrical resistance in ohms of a certain thermometer varies with temperature according to the approximate law:

$\mathrm{R}={\mathrm{R}}_{0}\left[1+\mathrm{\alpha }\left(\mathrm{T}-{\mathrm{T}}_{0}\right)\right]$

The resistance is 101.6  at the triple-point of water 273.16 K, and 165.5  at the normal melting point of lead (600.5 K). What is the temperature when the resistance is 123.4 ?
