Summer Olympics 100m Freestyle
The Goal of The Study
By using linear regression and methods of solving a system of equations, we will determine if and when women’s performance is likely to surpass men’s performance for a certain event. We will use data from the past and find the trend line of each gender and we will see if men will remain faster than women in 100m freestyle.
This Data shows a table labelled with the words Year, Men, and Women. The Year column shows each year that the men and women competed in the 100m freestyle; from 1925-2012. The Men and Women columns show the winning time of the gold medalist that year.
