COMMENTS

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

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A172158.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^12 - 18*n^11 + 3*n^10 + 1710*n^9 - 7175*n^8 - 60078*n^7 + 401649*n^6 + 884466*n^5 - 9521846*n^4 - 3238224*n^3 + 107453448*n^2 - 25651296*n - 483140880)/720 for n >= 7.

EXAMPLE

There are 219 ways of tiling a triangular area of side 6 with 6 tiles of side 2 and an appropriate number (= 12) of tiles of side 1. See illustration in links section.

PROG
