COMMENTS

Assuming that the rectangles have vertices at (k,0) and (k,1), k=0..n, the projective map (x,y) > ((1y)/(x+1),y/(x+1)) maps their partition to the partition of the right isosceles triangle described by Alekseyev et al. (2015), for which Theorem 13 gives the number of regions, line segments, and intersection points.  Max Alekseyev, Apr 10 2019
The figure is made up of A324042 triangles and A324043 quadrilaterals.  N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 03 2020

FORMULA

a(n) = n + (A114043(n+1)  1)/2, conjectured by N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 07 2019; proved by Max Alekseyev, Apr 10 2019
a(n) = n + A115005(n+1) = n + A141255(n+1)/2.  Max Alekseyev, Apr 10 2019
a(n) = A324042(n) + A324043(n).  Jinyuan Wang, Mar 19 2020
a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n, j=1..n, gcd(i,j)=1} (n+1i)*(n+1j) + n^2 + 2*n.  N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 11 2020


MAPLE

# Maple from N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 04 2020, starting at n=1: First define z(n) = A115004
z := proc(n)
local a, b, r ;
r := 0 ;
for a from 1 to n do
for b from 1 to n do
if igcd(a, b) = 1 then
r := r+(n+1a)*(n+1b);
end if;
end do:
end do:
r ;
end proc:
a := n> z(n)+n^2+2*n;
[seq(a(n), n=1..50)];

The following eight sequences are all essentially the same. The simplest is A115004(n), which we denote by z(n). Then A088658(n) = 4*z(n1); A114043(n) = 2*z(n1)+2*n^22*n+1; A114146(n) = 2*A114043(n); A115005(n) = z(n1)+n*(n1); A141255(n) = 2*z(n1)+2*n*(n1); A290131(n) = z(n1)+(n1)^2; A306302(n) = z(n)+n^2+2*n.
