How to divide surface algorithm

Hallo, i am a student programmer.

I'm looking for a solution to divide surface with less loss in
It would be a program where the user would input length en width of the original surface. Then the user would input the new lengths en witdhs of different new surfaces wich the original would be divided in.

So i'm looking for a algorithm that can calculate how to divide the original surface into the new different sized surfaces with less loss of the original surface.
Finally it should be shown on screen or being printed how to divide the original surface.

Is there a formula or approach for such problems?
