# 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

**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 <bits/stdc++.h> ` `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; ` `} ` |
