Together, Misty and Keith caught 29 fish. Keith caught 5 fewer fish than Misty. How many did they each catch?

math 
Ms. Sue,
Let M = Misty
M + M5 = 29
2M = 29 + 5
2M = 34
M = 17

I am smart,
I have no idea.
Can it be done?I don't know I'm in third grade.
This problem was on a paper in school and
even she didn't know how to do it.
