Actually, if she free fell 80 ft it would take 2.23 seconds but it was likely she already had an initial negative velocity during the bungee snap. Therefore, she would have free falled for less than 2.23 seconds.
Sorry, getting back to the new spring semester and projectile motion is the most difficult concept for my undergrads to grasp
