A LOT of similar questions posted here of late.....

 

total bills   14

 

x = 5 dollar bills       $ 5x  = amount in $ 5 denominations

  then   14-x   = number of 10 dollar bills       $ 10 ( 14-x)   = amount in $10 denominations

         both amounts must sum to $ 95

 

 

5x     +     10 (14-x)   = 95      solve for x , the number of $5 bills     then # 10's =   14 - x
