COMMENTS

A squared rectangle (which may be a square) is a rectangle dissected into a finite number, two or more, of squares. If no two of these squares have the same size the squared rectangle is perfect. A squared rectangle is simple if it does not contain a smaller squared rectangle. The order of a squared rectangle is the number of constituent squares.  Geoffrey H. Morley, Oct 17 2012]
Orders 15 to 19 were enumerated by C. J. Bowkamp and A. J. W. Duijvestijn (1962). Orders 20 to 29 were enumerated by Stuart Anderson (20102012). Orders 30 to 32 were enumerated by Lorenz Milla and Stuart Anderson (2013).  Stuart E Anderson, Sep 30 2013
