Challenge #246: Rectangle Tangle

My solution!! The irony of this challenge is that it was posted on the same day last year that I was supposed to be flying to the very place where that central rectangle is centered on, in Australia! Oh well... Solving spatial challenges for Australian landmarks is not quite as fun as visiting them in person... but I'll see them in person someday soon 🙂 In the meantime, this was a fun one! I do love me an iterative macro...

The macro - calculated the halfway point between each x/y coordinate, and then built a sequence polygon for the new points to calculate area. Fun iterative exercise!!

I took a while to understand how to calculate the MidPoint. Spatial is not my strength but well, I was able to do it

Nice challenge, went iterative macro with standard macro combo.
