Can a triangular prism and cubic tessellate?

Tessellate normally refers to two dimensional shapes covering the two dimensional plane without gaps of overlap, not 3-d space. In any case, this question cannot be answered because it does not specify a cubic WHAT!


Why is a sphere rarely used for packaging?

A sphere cannot be stacked tightly together. (It can't tessellate) A cube for example can and therefore maximizes storage space.


Why do all quadrilaterals tessellate?

In geometry, when quadrilaterals tessellate, they fill a finite or infinite space with no overlaps or gaps between shapes. All quadrilaterals tessellate because they can all be linked together side by side in some shape or form with no overlaps.

Why don't some regular polygons tessellate?

When a regular polygon can tessellate, it can be placed around a point (which has an angle of 360 degrees) with no 'space' left over. However some regular polygons don't tessellate because their interior angle is not a factor of 360 (does not go into 360 equally), meaning that there will be 'space' left over or it will overlap. To check if a regular polygon can tessellate, see if it's interior angle goes into 360 equally. (360/interior angle), if it does, it will tessellate and if it doesn't it's because the interior angle is not a factor of 360 meaning it will not fit round a point and won't tessellate.

Not necessarily. A sphere is a "space" figure, but is not made up of planes.


What is the measure of the space a solid figure occupies is called?

The measure of the amount of space a solid figure is Volume


Can a 3D shape tessellate?

Yes, many 3D shapes can tessellate, of course the cube, but also triangular and rectangular prisms. Spheres fit together in a regular repeating layout as well, but leave space between. There are also other shapes that can tessellate too, a portion of 3D n-imoes, for example, but aren't regular geometric shapes.


How do you figure the square feet of a space?

Multiply the length of the space by the width of the space.


Can an octagon and square tessellate?

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

What is a space figure in geometry?

A space figure is a figure or shape in 3-dimensional space. It could be solid but it need not be: for example, it could be a wriggly line drawn on the surface of a sphere.


What is the area of the figure?
