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

$\left(1\right)384.8\mathrm{K}$

$\left(2\right)486.8\mathrm{K}$

$\left(3\right)287.61\mathrm{K}$
