Magnification of plane mirror is #1# because image height and object height are the same.

Here is we consider that the mirror was initially #2.4 ft# high,so that the child was only able to see his full image,then the mirror needs to be #4.8 ft# long so that the child can look up,where he can see the image of his brother's upper part of the body,which is visible above him.
