Question about weapons that do two types of physical damage

For example, there are weapons that say “Piercing and Slashing” or “Bludgeoning and Piercing”.

If i do 10 damage with a “Piercing and Slashing” weapon, Does it do 5 Piercing and 5 Slashing damage or does it do 10 and picks one of the two damage type randomly?

I’m creating an ability that allows you to simulate a claw attack which is “Piercing and Slashing” and i have that dilema.

I think it picks the type that will bypass the resistance. Hence, morningstar should do bludgeon damage versus skellies.
