# 200 Meter Dash

### By:Christopher Palmer

## The Sprinters

200 Meter dash is a sport where you need to be fast, quick, agile, and endured. Although 20 seconds might not seem long but when you half to run 200m (656 feet) It is very hard to run for that long. In fact the 200m competitors are sprinters not long distance runners so they half to hold thier pace that is usually half that for twice as long.

## Why?

The goal is to find at what year if ever the women will pass the men in the 200 Meter Dash. The answer is no the point where the women will be faster than the men would be in the year 1875 which at that point the Olympics did not exist. So theoretically the men will always be faster than the women in the 100 meter dash according to past records.

## Data Set 1 Data Set 1 shows the fastest times of Men and Women from Years 1976-1988. | ## Data Set 2 Shows the Fastest times from 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 where the data is very stretched because this is where there was a random drop and then the next olympics it went right back up to 20 seconds. | ## Data Set 3 This Set shows the two most recent olympics of 2008 and 2012 and how the men are generally much faster than the women in those two olympics with a 2 second gap. |

## Data Set 2

Shows the Fastest times from 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 where the data is very stretched because this is where there was a random drop and then the next olympics it went right back up to 20 seconds.

## Intersection

The intersection point between the two genders represents whenthe women would be faster than men and how fast they would have to run. As the Picture below shows the women would be faster than the men in the 1875 but as we know the olympics started in 1896 so theoretically the men will always be faster than the women if the pattern continues.

## The X Intercept

The X Intercept is the point where the time starts and X=0 That means that the Person ran the 200 meters is 0.000 seconds which is impossible. That would mean the Man or Women was going infinite amount of miles per second.

## The Y Intercept

The Y intercept is Year 0 which is way before the olympics were ever thought of. The time is the x axis so the point in where the time starts is at the Y intercept. Meaning negative x it the years in B.C.
