Hello Seqfans, 


"Images du CNRS" French site 4th problem for September 2020 is: 
. 
What is the minimum number of 1X1 pieces to fill a 23X23 square with 1X1, 2X2, and 3X3 pieces. 
Problem is at http://images.math.cnrs.fr/Septembre-2020-4e-defi.html. 
Solution is at http://images.math.cnrs.fr/Octobre-2020-1er-defi.html (click in Solution du 4e défi de septembre) 


I wondered what we get for other squares and painstakingly obtained for n=1 up to n=23: 
1 0 0 0 4 0 3 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 4 0 4 0 0 0 1 


Do you see some mistakes? Is it possible to extend it? 


Thanks. Best. 
MM
