    Answer: Meera is 24

    Step-by-step explanation:

    suppose the present age of meera is x years

    by the given condition

    1/2(x+2)+1/3(x-3)=20

    3(x+2)+2(x-3)=120          …………..multiply by 6

    3x+6+2x-6=120

    5x=120

    x=24

    hence the present age of meera is 24 years.
