The common ratio is 1.2.

After 12 weeks the plant will be 4.46 meters long.

After one year the plant will be 6,552.32 meters long.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that a marrow plants 0.5 m long and every week it grows by 20%, to find the value of the common ratio, calculate how long the plant is after 12 weeks and comment on the predicted length of the marrow after one year must be performed the following calculations:

0.50 x 1.2 ^ X = Y

Therefore, the common ratio is 1.2.

0.50 x 1.2 ^ 12 = Y

0.50 x 8.916 = Y

4.4580 = Y

Therefore, after 12 weeks the plant will be 4.46 meters long.

0.50 x 1.2 ^ 52 = Y

0.50 x 13,104.63 = Y

6,552.32 = Y

Therefore, after one year the plant will be 6,552.32 meters long.
