the anwer is wrong. :/

The numbers are approximate, but not totally wrong. At the top v=0 and the time past will be half the total time given, so we have\[v=v_i-gt=0\to v_i=gt\approx10(1.5)=15m/s\]we can use a kinematic to find the height\[s=v_it-\frac12gt^2\approx15(1.5)-10(1.5)^2\frac12\approx11\]
