10M + N = (M+N)*3 + 7
=> 3M + 3N + 7 = 10M + N
=> N = (7M-7)/2 ....... (1)
Also, for N to be a single digit number, 7M-7 < 20 => M < 27/7

So, M can be one of 1, 2 or 3

Only M=3 satisfies (1) above.

My approach:

10M+N=3M+3N+7
7M-7=2N
7(M-1)=2N, so N is a multiple of 7, but less than 10 since it is a digit. Therefore, N=7 and M=3.

37 is correct.
