 Compendium, Book And Novel (Posted on 2007-08-11)

(I) The music compendium costs more than twice the science book.

(II) Three copies of the science book cost more than four copies of the fiction novel.

(III) Three copies of the fiction novel cost more than the music compendium.

Given that all prices are whole numbers of dollars, how much does each item cost?
