Boat is 92 ft. from the base of a cliff. Distance from top of the cliff to the boat is 23 less than twice the height of the cliff. Find height of the cliff.

 I tried using Pythagorean Theorom with one side being 92, one side being X, and the hypotenuse being 2X-23.  I could not figure it out. Any help?
