Toilet Paper- 5, Loaf of Bread - 1, Hand Sanitizer- 94

Toilet Paper- p = $10
Loaf of Bread - b= $3
Hand Sanitizer- s=$0.5
p+b+s=100 --------> (1)
0.5s+3b+10p=100 --------> (2)
2*(2)-(1)=> s+6b+20p-(s+b+p)=100 => 5b+19p=100 => it has one positive integer solution: p=5, b=1 and as per (1), s=100-5-1=94
Toilet Paper- 5*$10=$50, Loaf of Bread - 1*$3= $3, Hand Sanitizer- 94*$0.5=$47
