Consider the vertical motion of the particle. You know that v=u+at. Take the final velocity v to be zero (at the maximum height of the particle, and halfway through the motion). You know the time t (half of the total time), and the acceleration due to gravity. This lets you find the initial vertical velocity of the particle, which you can then resolve to find the initial speed. Hope that makes sense and helps!
