Open the file called Battleships game.xlsx.  Welcome to the Wise Owl version of Battleships!

Write a subroutine to "sink" a submarine by changing the colour of cell H4.

Sink submarine

Feel free to use a different colour to indicate the sunken submarine.


Write a separate subroutine which sinks the destroyer in cells C4:C6.

Write one more subroutine to sink the battleship.  You can do this by referring to cell references J4:J8, or the range name Battleship.

Sunken ships

The result of your careful targeting is three sunken ships.
