What would happen to the temperature (in Kelvin) if the speed of every atom in a monatomic ideal gas were doubled (specifically, what multiplication factor would be used)?

Temperature is proportional to the kinetic energy. If the speed of every atom doubles, the temperature would rise by a factor of 4.
