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.
triangle

Examples:

Input: X = 40
Output: 80

Input: X = 100
Output: 200

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:
