If we take the digits to be x & y we can write the following equation;
(10x + y) + (10y + x) = 66
11x + 11y = 66
So x + y = 6;
So the possibilities are as follows;
0, 6 or 6, 0;
1,5 or 5,1;
2, 4 or 4, 2;
Only when the sons age is 15 is the second condition satisfied.
So the answer is;
Father’s age = 51 &
Son’s age = 15
