Let AC be the slide for the children below the age of 5 years. The height of this slide is 1.5 m inclined at 30°.

In ΔABC,

AB/AC = sin 30°

⇒ 1.5/AC = 1/2

⇒ AC = 3

Let AC be the slide for the childern above 5 years which is 3 m high and inclined at 60° with the horizontal.

In ΔABC,

AB/AC = sin 60° ⇒ 3/AC = √3/2

⇒ AC = 6/√3 = 6√3/3 = 2√3

Hence, the height of the slides are 3m and 2√3.
