Anna has 12 bills in her wallet, some $5 and some $10. The total value of the bills is $100. HOw many of each bill odes Anna have?

How do i solve these type of problems my quess was this but i don't know if i'm correct.

5(x) + 10(y) = 100

5(0) + 10y = 100

10y = 100

--- ---

10 10

y = 10

5(x) + 10(10) = 100

5x + 100 = 100

-100 -100

5x = 0

--- ---

5 5

x = 0

to check is :

5(0) + 10(10) = 100

0 + 100 = 100

100 = 100

you have the intercepts ok.

but its asking about how many of each so is my answer correct or what am i doing wrong.
