# Find the height of a right-angled triangle whose area is X times its base

Given that the area of a right-angled triangle is X times its base b. The task is to find the height of the given triangle.

Examples:

Input: X = 40
Output: 80

Input: X = 100
Output: 200

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: We know that the area of a right-angled triangle, Area = (base * height) / 2 and it is given that this area is X times the base i.e. base * X = (base * height) / 2.
Solving for height, we get height = (2 * base * X) / base = 2 * X.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to return the height of the ` `// right-angled triangle whose area ` `// is X times its base ` `int` `getHeight(``int` `X) ` `{ ` `    ``return` `(2 * X); ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `X = 35; ` ` `  `    ``cout << getHeight(X); ` ` `  `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java implementation of the approach ` `import` `java.util.*; ` `import` `java.lang.*; ` `import` `java.io.*; ` ` `  `class` `Gfg ` `{ ` `     `  `// Function to return the height of the ` `// right-angled triangle whose area ` `// is X times its base ` `static` `int` `getHeight(``int` `X) ` `{ ` `    ``return` `(``2` `* X); ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args) ``throws` `java.lang.Exception ` `{ ` `    ``int` `X = ``35``; ` `    ``System.out.println(getHeight(X)) ; ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by nidhiva `

## Python3

 `# Python 3 implementation of the approach ` ` `  `# Function to return the height of the ` `# right-angled triangle whose area ` `# is X times its base ` `def` `getHeight(X): ` `    ``return` `(``2` `*` `X) ` ` `  `# Driver code ` `if` `__name__ ``=``=` `'__main__'``: ` `    ``X ``=` `35` ` `  `    ``print``(getHeight(X)) ` ` `  `# This code is contributed by ` `# Surendra_Gangwar `

## C#

 `// C# implementation of the approach ` `using` `System; ` ` `  `class` `Gfg ` `{ ` `     `  `// Function to return the height of the ` `// right-angled triangle whose area ` `// is X times its base ` `static` `int` `getHeight(``int` `X) ` `{ ` `    ``return` `(2 * X); ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `public` `static` `void` `Main ()  ` `{ ` `    ``int` `X = 35; ` `    ``Console.WriteLine(getHeight(X)) ; ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed by anuj_67.. `

Output:

```70
