Imagine that if you drop an apple from a certain height, its final speed is 20 m/s when it reaches the ground. If you throw the apple vertically downward from the same height with an initial speed of 20 m/s, what will be its final speed?

I tried 2mgh=1/2mv^2 so that the mass would cancel out and then i solved for h and used that number in the equation v^2=V(o)^2+2a(h) and I am not getting the correct answer... any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you
