Need to find $$RW=2RM$$

In triangle QRM & TMW, $$QR=TW$$, $$RM=MW$$ and angle $$QRM=TWM=90°$$. Hence both the triangles are congruent

This implies angle $$QMR=TMW=60°$$. Hence triangle QRM is a $$30°-60°-90°$$ triangle so the ratio of sides will be $$1:\sqrt{3}:2$$

As $$QR=6$$, so $$RM=\frac{6}{\sqrt{3}}$$ $$=2\sqrt{3}$$

Hence $$RW=2*2\sqrt{3}=4\sqrt{3}$$
