rose counted her money and found that her 25 coins which were nickels, dimes, and quarters were worth $3.20. The number of dimes exceeded the number of nickels by 4. How many coins of each kind did she have?

I know that the expression for nickles would be 5x, for dimes it would be

10x + 40, but i dont understand how to do the expression for quarters.....can someone help me with the answer
