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.

Does a decagon tessellate a plane?

No. No shape with 7 or more sides will tessellate with multiple copies of itself. All traigles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, there are 14 irregular pentagons (the last was discovered in 2016), and a number of hexagons - including the regular hexagon.


What shapes can tessellate?

equilateral and isoceles triangles, squares, rectangles and hexagons. equilateral and isoceles triangles, squares, rectangles and hexagons. * * * * * ALL triangle and ALL quadrilaterals will tessellate. There are 15 pentagons as well as 3 convex hexagons which will tessellate. No polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.


Can irregular polygons tessellate?

Some can, but not all. For example, rhombi, rhomboids, oblongs, and isosceles triangles can tessellate; however, most irregular polygons cannot. * * * * * True, but an incomplete answer. All triangles and quadrilaterals, whether regular or irregular, will tessellate. No regular pentagon will tessellate but (as of 2016), there are 15 irregular pentagons which will tessellate. There are 3 convex hexagons, (regular and 2 irregular) which will tessellate. No polygon with 7 or more sides, even if it is regular, will tessellate.
