A regular pentagon is one example.

### How many pentagons tessellate to make a 3d shape?

Tessellation is covering a 2-d surface. Tessellation and making a 3-d shape are not compatible processes. 12 regular pentagons will form a dodecahedron.

### What is a pure tessellation?

A tessellation is the laying out of one or more convex polygons over a certain amount of space without gaps. A pure tessellation is a tessellation in which only one shape is applied to cover an area.A tessellation is a design that covers a plane with no gaps and no overlaps.A pure tessellation is one that uses only one shape

### Why do tessellations have to be used with only polygons?

All shapes have to be polygons, because there is no shape that has 1 or 2 sides. A tessellation has to be a shape, so that it can be repeated. Its not going to be much of a tessellation if its a line.. lol.. that isn't a tessellation

### What are the tessellation units?

Tessellation is using multiple copies of a shape, usually a polygon, to cover a plane without gaps or overlaps. Each copy of this single shape is a tessellating unit.

### What shape makes a pure tessellation?

Triangles, Hexagons and Squares. I am not a math professor or a college student, but I'm pretty sure that there are some more irregular shapes out there that will form a tessellation.

### Is a pentagon a tessellation?

No a pentagon is a single polygonal shape, A tessellation is a scheme for covering a plane, without gaps of overlaps, using multiple copies of the same basic shape. These are usually polygons.

### What is the difference between a semi regular and a regular tessellation?

A regular tessellation is based on only one regular polygonal shape. A semi-regular tessellation is based on two or more regular polygons.

### Show you a Picture of a tessellation?

A tessellation is created when a shape is repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gaps or overlaps.
