A contractor purchased boxes of three types of nails at the hardware store. The clipped head nails cost $32, the large round head nails cost $40, the small round head nails cost $34. She bought twice as many boxes of the clipped head nails and three times as many boxes of small round head nails as she bought large round head nails. How many boxes of each nail did she buy if the total cost for all the nails was $824?
