How many unique sums can one form using any number of these bills only once?

Num of unique sums we get using 1 bill at a time = 5
Num of unique sums we get using 2 of the 5 bills at a time = C(5,2) = 10
Num of unique sums we get using 3 of the 5 bills at a time = C(5,3) = 10
Num of unique sums we get using 4 of the 5 bills at a time = C(5,4) = 5
Num of unique sums we get using 5 bills at a time = 1

So, answer = 5 + 10 + 10 + 5 + 1 = 31

Am I right?
