Partition a Square (Posted on 2011-03-15) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Clearly, a square can be partitioned into four smaller non-overlapping squares with two lines through its center and parallel to its sides. Trivially, a square can be partitioned into one square with no lines.

Question: For which integers n > 0 can a square be partitioned into n non-overlapping squares (not necessarily the same size)?
