## 4 x 100 meter relay

The 4 × 100 metres relay or sprinting relay is an athletic track event run in lanes over one lap of the track with four runners completing 100 metres each. The first runners must begin in the same stagger as for the individual 400 m race. A relay baton is carried by each runner and must be passed within a 20 m changeover box (usually marked by yellow lines) which extends 10 m on either side of each 100 m mark of the race. Another line is marked 10 m further back, marking the earliest point at which the outgoing runner may begin slowing down.

## Scatter plot

This is the scatter plot that has graphed the data table that I have just collected.

## The X coordinate

The X coordinate is the years in which both women and men both participated in the Olympics. For this Calculation this is the X coordinate.

## The Y intercept

The Y intercept is the time of the men and the women. For this calculation it is the Y coordinate.
