Megha: “Is that really so? And yet it is a fact that when you were my present age you were twice as old as I was then. I worked it out last night.”

Maninder ‘s age must have been twenty-nine years and two-fifths, and Megha’s nineteen years and three-fifths. When Maninder was aged nineteen and three-fifths, Megha was only nine and four-fifths; so Maninder was at that time twice her age.

solving 1 and 2 gives ans.
