Once you solve that, you can use this equation. v final = (v initial)+at For the vertical motion, a is always 9.8m/s^2 which is the acceleration due to gravity.

Once you get the time to go up, you multiply the time by 2 since the time to go up is teh same as the time to go back down assuming they start and end at teh same height.
