Then the next hundred meters the swimmer will do the breast stroke and after that the last 100 meters will be done with the free style.
The purpose of this assignment is to see if the women go beyond men time in a 400 meter individual medley.
The Goal of this Assignment
The Goal of this Assignment was to find the intersecting point. Also to use the intersection point to find out what year the men and woman performance will be the same.
The Data I have collected consist of the year the gold medalist time for men and women. Also the time is recorded in seconds.
The Data was collected from 1976 to 2012. The Data has been arranged from oldest recorded time to the current recorded time.
The intersection of the two trend lines means that Men and Woman Performance are the same. The trend lines are going down so that means that the time of the swimmers are decreases and the swimmers are getting faster. The year the men and Woman time will be the same would have been in the 1918 but the Olympics wouldn't have been in that year but it would have been in the year of 1920. The Men and Women would Share time of 299 seconds. But the woman's time will not surpass the men performance according to the trend line.
