When Maya went to get a passport, she had to give her real date of birth, but under all other circumstances she refused. When somebody asked how old she was, she said she was twenty-one, mentally omitting all Sundays. Sundays she didn't work, so naturally she didn't get any older.

How old was Maya really?

She is 24 years and 6 months

AS she is considering 6 days rather than 7, means she is 21*7/6=24.5 years old

Her age should be 24.5 years, if she says she is 21, then her age is approx.7670 days, but she considered only 6 days out of 7 in giving her age, so her actual age should be around 8948 days, which comes to 24.5 years of age
