Judd paid 182 dollars for a thermos, a blender, and a microwave. The blender cost 35 more dollars than the thermos. the microwave cost 65.50 more than a blender. Find the cost of the blender? please show your work.

Let t = thermos
t + t + 35 + t + 35 + 65.50 = 182
3t + 135.5 = 182
3t = 46.50
t = 15.50
blender = 15.5 + 35
