sorry missed apart of your question.

a 6, 8 and 12 would feed 80
a 6, 8 and 10 would feed 62

this is a good chart i use to figure out serving and cake sizes icon_smile.gifhttp://shinymetalobjects.net/cake/calculator/cakulator.cgi?pan=Square%2C+6%22&pan=Square%2C+8%22&pan=Square%2C+10%22&option=2&option=Select+Cakulator&chart=wiltonParty2Inch&chart=Select+Chart&calculate=Calculate%21&.cgifields=pan

Those tiers are more than 4" tall... they're either 6 or 8" in height. They'll serve 50% more than the chart if 6" tall (with a board in the middle at 3", sliced into 1x2x3" servings), or 100% more if 8" tall.
http://www.wilton.com/cakes/making-cakes/baking-wedding-cake-2-inch-pans.cfm

A 4" square serves 8 (12 for extra tall tier),
a 5" square serves 12.5 (28.75 for extra tall tier),
a 6" square serves 18 (27 for extra tall tier), and
a 7" square serves 24.50 (36.75 for extra tall tier).

Using a 4/6/8 would yield 87 servings.
Using a 5/6/7 would yield 82.50 servings.
