How many rolls of each coin does he have?

There are 50 dimes in a roll of dimes, 40 nickels in a roll of nickels, and 40 quarters in a roll of quarters. Rob has 12 rolls of coins with a total value of $70.00. He has 3 more rolls of nickels than dimes. How many rolls of each coin does he have?

mistake on quarters ... should be 40*.25*q (transposed 12, number of rolls, rather than 40, number of quarters in a roll)
