September 2016 Puzzle

Consider the rectangle below with dimensions 11 units by 12 units.  The challenge is to partition this rectangle (using only the gridlines for edges) into 5 non-square rectangles so that no two rectangles have a side length in common.  The example on the right shows a failed attempt since there are two rectangles that have a side of length 4.
