Best Answer

Tessellation is defined as the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions. A periodic tiling has a repeat pattern. A regular quadrilateral can be used by itself to make a tessellation.

Can a regular octagon be used by itself to make a tessellation?

No Internat angle of a regular octagon is 135°. No multiple of 135° will make 360°. Thus at any point there can be at most two octagons and a 90° gap. Ratty
