## Challenge #246: Rectangle Tangle

Alteryx
A solution to last week's challenge can be found here

This week you are given 4 centroids which you can turn into a rectangle. Once you have created your rectangle, find the midpoints of the lines that connect those centroids, then make another rectangle from those points. Keep doing this until the area of the rectangle is less than 5 square miles.

This was a fun one. I took an iterative approach, outputting all of the iterations and only keep the last one.
