Sum of Area of all possible square inside a rectangle
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 20 Apr, 2021

Given two integers L and B denoting the length and breadth of a rectangle respectively. The task is to calculate the sum of the area of all possible squares that comes into the rectangle.
Examples
 

Input: L = 4, B = 3
Output: 54

Input:  L = 2, B = 5
Output: 26

 

The idea is to observe the count of number of squares in a rectangle
 

Now, the number of squares of side 1 will be 12 as there will be two cases one as squares of 1-unit sides along the horizontal(3) and second case as squares of 1-unit sides along the vertical(4). That gives us 3*4 = 12 squares.
When the side is 2 units, one case will be as squares of side of 2 units along only one place horizontally and second case as two places vertically. So the number of squares = 6
So we can deduce that, 
Number of squares of size 1*1 will be L*B
Number of squares of size 2*2 will be (L-1)(B-1)
Therefore, the number of squares with size K  will be: 
 



Number of square of size K = (L-K+1)*(B-K+1) 
 

Therefore, area of total number of squares of size K will be: 
 

Area of total number of square of size K = (L-K+1)*(B-K+1)*K*K 
 

Below is the implementation of above idea:
 

C++




// CPP program to calculate the sum of area
// of all possible squares that comes
// inside the rectangle
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate the sum of area
// of all possible squares that comes
// inside the rectangle
int calculateAreaSum(int l, int b)
{
    int size = 1;
     
    // Square with max size possible
    int maxSize = min(l,b);
     
    int totalArea = 0;
     
    for(int i=1; i <= maxSize; i++)
    {  
        // calculate total square of a given size
        int totalSquares = (l-size+1)*(b-size+1);
         
        // calculate area of squares of a
        // particular size   
        int area = totalSquares*size*size;
         
        // total area   
        totalArea += area;
          
        // increment size   
        size++;
    }
     
    return totalArea;
}

    return 0;

    int totalArea = 0;
 
    for(int i = 1; i <= maxSize; i++)
    {
        // calculate total square
        // of a given size
        int totalSquares = (l - size + 1) *
                           (b - size + 1);
     
        // calculate area of squares
        // of a particular size
        int area = totalSquares *  
                    size * size;
     
        // total area
        totalArea += area;
         
        // increment size
        size++;
    }
 
    return totalArea;
}
