Experimental results suggest that a muon decays to an election and photon. How is this possible?

To determine

The possibility for a muon to decay into an electron and photon.

Explanation

Introduction:

Generally, the muon is an unstable one. It is lighter than all particles but heavier than neutrinos and electrons. Through weak interaction, muon gets decayed. Through weak interaction, muon gets decayed. It's mean lifetime is about 2.2μs.

The muon and electron are leptons
