Hi, I'm stuck on a problem in my homework so I would be really grateful for any help! Here it is:

My friend and I took a maths test with 10 questions. Question 1 was worth 1 mark, question 2 was worth 2 marks, question 3 was worth 3 marks, and so on. Correct answers scored full marks and incorrect answers scored 0 marks. We both scored the same number of marks and correctly answered the same number of questions. However, we didn’t solve exactly the same set of questions as each other. What is the maximum score that I could have received for the test?

I am trying to create an equation but I got stuck when I realised that each question is worth a different amount of marks and I didn't know how many questions I got correct. Thank you so much!
