COMMENTS

Rotations and reflections of tilings are counted. If they are to be ignored, see A286446. Tiles of the same size are not distinguishable.

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A061997.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^8 -12*n^7 +6*n^6 +432*n^5 -1279*n^4 -4692*n^3 +20592*n^2 +13320*n -91800)/24, for n>=5.

G.f.: x^4*(1 + 16*x + 558*x^2 + 1552*x^3 + 770*x^4 - 1674*x^5 + 306*x^6 + 144*x^7 + 45*x^8 - 38*x^9) / (1 - x)^9. - Colin Barker, May 12 2017

EXAMPLE

There are 25 ways of tiling a triangular area of side 5 with 4 tiles of side 2 and an appropriate number (= 9) of tiles of side 1. See example in links section.
