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

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 10 Mar, 2021

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: 
 

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;
}

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)) ;
}
}

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))

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)) ;
}
}

Javascript




<script>
     
// Function to return the height of the
// right-angled triangle whose area
// is X times its base
 
function getHeight(X)
{
    return (2 * X);
}
 
// Driver code
 
var X = 35;
document.write(getHeight(X)) ;

</script>
Output: 
70
