They Got the Need for Speed
A Look at Speed Skating
X Coordinates (List 1) - The years that the men and women competed.
Y Coordinates (List 2&3)- The winning times for the men and women.
The Line of Best Fit (Linear Regression)
Women's Best Fit Line Equation : -0.149970181730266x + 424.2216
Men's Best Fit Line Equation : -0.131081355522424x + 374.7287
Intersection Point : (2620.220162 , 31.26671673)
I created a chart to show both the men's and women's times over a period of 54 years.
Then I made a scatter plot to compare the data from both groups. I then created a line of best fit, or linear regression for my data. I then got the data for the equations of my lines of best fit. I looked at the data and came up with a conclusion.
