We investigate the problem that how many different ways one can dissect the unit-square into rectangles with prescribed areas w1, . . . , wn. One of our answers is the following: If w1, . . . , wn−1 are algebraicly independent, then the number in the question asymptotically equals to 32(1+o(1))/π√3 (n!8n/n4)
