COMMENTS

Rotations and reflections of tilings are not counted. If they are to be counted, see A286438. Tiles of the same size are indistinguishable.

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A279112.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^6 -9*n^5 +6*n^4 +165*n^3 -447*n^2 -372*n +1736)/36 + IF(MOD(n, 2) = 1, -n^2 +6*n -9)/2 + IF(MOD(n, 3) = 0, -2)/9 for n >= 4.

EXAMPLE

There are 2 non-equivalent 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.
