Solve chemical reaction for temperature of exothermic reaction (thermite)

Hi there, I I have a question about Physics/ chemistry.

If I have a bag of iron oxide(lll) and powdered aluminium in the ratio of 3:1 totalling 72g, with 54g being Fe2O3 and 18g of 2Al, what would the temperature be when it burns during the exothermic reaction? Can you give full working out and equations?

P.S the powder would be mixed and put in a plant pot.
