COMMENTS

Rotations and reflections of tilings are counted. If they are to be ignored, see A286445. Tiles of the same size are not distinguishable.

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A061996.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7,-21,35,-35,21,-7,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^6 - 9*n^5 + 6*n^4 + 153*n^3 - 361*n^2 - 564*n + 1848)/6 for n>=4.

G.f.: x^4*(4 + 35*x + 137*x^2 - 28*x^3 - 24*x^4 - 15*x^5 + 11*x^6) / (1 - x)^7. - Colin Barker, May 11 2017

EXAMPLE

There are 4 ways of tiling a triangular area of side 4 with three tiles of side 2 and an appropriate number (= 4) of tiles of side 1. See example in links section.

PROG

(PARI) concat(0, Vec(x^4*(4 + 35*x + 137*x^2 - 28*x^3 - 24*x^4 - 15*x^5 + 11*x^6) / (1 - x)^7 + O(x^30))) \\ Colin Barker, May 11 2017
