Going to LA and Las Vegas in mid May, how much time do I need in each place?

My Mum and I (50 and 30 years) are travelling from New Zealand to USA in mid May and will be there for 10 nights. We are wanting to go to LA and Las Vegas and was wondering how many days would we need in each place? We arent big gamblers but do want to see the nightly shows etc.
