Best Answer

Yes - because, when you lay regular octagons together so they're touching, the space between the octagons is a perfect square.

Does an octagon tessellate?

An octagon cannot tessellate because when you put about 4 together, there are gaps in between the shapes, which is not allowed in a tessellation. When you put together 5 octagon's, some of them are overlapping and there still are gaps. Therefore, an octagon cant tessellate.

Can a regular octagon and a square tessellate?

You cannot use a regular octagon on it's own to make a tiling pattern without any gaps. However a regular Octagon and a square can be used together to make a tessellation. Many people think that regular octagons tesselate on their own because they do not appreciate the need for no gaps.

Why can't a regular octagon tessellate?

To be able to tessellate where a vertex meets other vertices, the total of those angles must be a full circle of 360°. The interior angle of an Octagon is 135° which does not divide into 360° which means there cannot be a complete number of vertices meeting and so it cannot, by itself, tessellate. However, two octagons meeting at a point would have 135° + 135° = 270° leaving 90° which is the interior angle of a square. So octagons and squares together will tessellate.
