A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is seni-regular tessellation?

There is no such thing as a seni-regular tessellation. A semi-regular tessllation is a tessellation using two regular polygons: for example, octagons and squares together.

What best describe a semi regular tessellation?

A tessellation that uses more than one type of regular polygon

Can a tessellation be created using only regular polygons?

No. See, for example, the top image in the attached link.

What is a characesteristic of a regular tessellation?

A regular tessellation is one in which a plane is covered, without gaps or overlaps, using copies of a regular polygon.

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 are the characteristics of shapes that can be tessellated?

A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible. Tessellations frequently appeared in the art of M C Escher. Tessellations are seen throughout art history, from ancient architecture to Modern Art.A regular tessellation is a highly symmetric tessellation made up of congruent regular polygons. Only three regular tessellations exist: those made up of equilateral triangles, squares or hexagons. A semiregular tessellation uses a variety of regular polygons; there are eight of these. The arrangement of polygons at every vertex point is identical. An edge-to-edge tessellation is even less regular: the only requirement is that adjacent tiles only share full sides, i.e. no tile shares a partial side with any other tile. Other types of tessellations exist, depending on types of figures and types of pattern. There are regular versus irregular, periodic versus aperiodic, symmetric versus asymmetric, and fractal tessellations, as well as other classifications.Penrose tiling using two different polygons are the most famous example of tessellations that create aperiodic patterns. They belong to a general class of aperiodic tilings that can be constructed out of self-replicating sets of polygons by using recursion.

What shape will create a tessellation using only translations?

regular hexagon

Is tessellation making a pattern?

No, it is using multiple copies of a shape, usually polygons, so as to cover a plane without gaps or overlaps.

Tessellations that use more than one type of regular polygon are called regular tessellations?

No. Regular tessellations use only one polygon. And, according to the strict definition of regular tessellation, the polygon must be regular. Then a tessellation using rectangles, for example, cannot be called regular.

What is a semi regular tessellation?

semi regular tessellations are made by using two or more regular shapes. Every vertex must have the exact same configuration.

Can a concave polygon be a regular polygon?

No, regular polygons are always convex and are shapes constructed using straight lines. concave polygons are irregular.

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

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.

Is it possible to create a tessellation using only regular hexagons?


What A covering of a plane without overlaps or gaps using combinations of congruent figures?

It is a regular tessellation.

Can a tessellation be created using only a regular hexagon?

Yes. Bees are extremely good at tessellating regular hexagons in a honeycomb.

What is the connection between tessellation and geometry?

Tessellation consists of covering a plane using copies of a shape (usually a polygon) so that there are no gaps or overlaps. The study of properties of a plane and plane shapes - whether polygons or other 2-d shapes are all part of geometry.

What is the most-sided regular 3D shape that can be stacked perfectly in a 3D tessellation while leaving no spaces in between?

6: using a regular hexahedron.

What qualifications are needed to be a tessellation?

A tessellation is a method for using copies of a single shape to cover a plane surface without gaps or overlaps. Semi-regular tessellations use two (or more) shapes.

What shapes are able to be tiled?

Squares or rectangles.Answer:Shapes which can be tiled (fit together without spaces or overlaps) are said to exhibit tessellation. These can be as simple as two dimensional shapes (squares and triangles) or as complex as the drawings by M.C. Escher who made tiles of birds and fishes.In general tiling shapes can be regular polygons (all the same) or mixtures of different shapes of regular polygons. More exotic shapes are developed by mathematicians. These include tiles using irregular polygons and three dimensional shapes.

Draw a regular tessellation in the box provided using only squares?

Done. Hope you like the box now.

How is tessellation mathematical?

Tessellation involves using copies of a shape, usually a polygon, to cover a plane surface without gaps or overlaps. The study of plane surfaces and regular shapes are part of geometry and, therefore, of mathematics.

What polygons can be used to make tessellations?

Regular tessellations can be made using triangles, squares, and hexagons.

Could a tessellation be made using just one of a polygon?

No. Because tessellation is about using lost (infinitely many) copies of a polygon to cover a surface, One polygon does not comprise a tessellation.

Is it possible to do a tessellation using only regular pentagon?

No. Each interior angle of a regular pentagon is 108 degrees. In order for tessellation to be possible, the sum of the angles meeting at a point must be 360 degrees. That is to ensure that all the space around that point is covered. But 108 is not a factor of 360 so it is not possible.

Can A Tessellation be created using parallelograms?

Yes it can
