Megha and her father love puzzles. When Megha’s cousin asked her how old she was she told her :“If I doubled my age and subtracted 1, it would be the same as my father’s age - and if you reverse the digits of his age, you get my age.”

As per the question, we came to know that age of father is an odd number, as double age of meghna -1. so the 1st digit of age of meghna is an odd #.

then after on trail and error basis we found 37 as age of meghna and 73 as age of meghna's father.

As 37 *2 -1 = 73.

37 meghas age, 73 fathers age.
