# Attaching n squares

Tags: attaching, squares
 P: 1,005 In the picture attached I have tried to list the different shapes you can get when you attach, 1, 2, 3, 4 squares, but, as you can imagine, when n gets bigger the number of combinations gets incredibly large. Is there are way to see how many possible configurations there is for n squares, and the different perimeters of these shapes? If not is it possible for equilateral triangles? Attached Thumbnails

Can't see the attachment
EDIT:Now it's there.That is very similar to Isomers of hydrocarbons(Chemistry)
 P: 1,005 now :)
