COMMENTS

Rotations and reflections of tilings are counted. Tiles of the same size are not distinguishable.

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A061998.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^10 -15*n^9 +5*n^8 +930*n^7 -3325*n^6 -19863*n^5 +109915*n^4 +155100*n^3 -1365876*n^2 -191592*n +5981760)/120 for n >= 6.

G.f.: 6*x^6*(91 + 1343*x + 5429*x^2 + 1703*x^3 - 4419*x^4 - 789*x^5 + 2379*x^6 - 627*x^7 - 76*x^8 - 14*x^9 + 20*x^10) / (1 - x)^11. - Colin Barker, May 12 2017

EXAMPLE

There are 546 ways of tiling a triangular area of side 6 with 5 tiles of side 2 and an appropriate number (= 16) of tiles of side 1. See illustration in links section.

PROG

(PARI) concat(0, Vec(6*x^6*(91 + 1343*x + 5429*x^2 + 1703*x^3 - 4419*x^4 - 789*x^5 + 2379*x^6 - 627*x^7 - 76*x^8 - 14*x^9 + 20*x^10) / (1 - x)^11 + O(x^40))) \\ Colin Barker, May 12 2017
