I think its impossible. because these all are odd numbers. when you add 5 odd numbers then result will be in odd number but 50 is even number. I think you have missed any thing in this question...

If you are talking about 5 digits then:

(3*11) + 17 = 50

Digits used 3, 1, 1, 1, 7

If you are talking about five numbers then:

19 = 10
13
11
9
7

10 + 13 + 11 + 9 + 7 = 50

There are lot of other ways to arrive at 50.

Note: As per your question there is no limitation of plus or minus, one can use any of +, - , x , / to arrive at 50.
