Elo gain and loss

Would someone of higher knowledge care to explain to me just how much elo you gain or lose is determined.

Me and 2 friends last night decided to play some ranked 3's.
After winning our match, I noticed I received one more + to my rating then them.

Catch on all of that is they were rated over a hundred elo below me. As a player of a higher rating, why should I receive more for a win than they do?
