Determining the pH of an aqueous solution

Determine the pH of an aqueous solution prepared by mixing 50 mL of .125 M KOH with 50 mL of .125 M HCl while maintaining the temperature of the the system at 50 degrees C.

This seems like a standard reaction of a strong base with a strong acid question.
I think that we can safely ignore the temperature in this case because both the acid and the base are strong.

So let's ...
