A regular pentagon doesn't tessellate because of the way the sides are joined together and hes shape of the regular pentagon.Something along those lines anyway.....

the answer is yes

yes no yes no

no. only irregular pentalgons can tesselate

"yes"The answer above is incorrect. it was proven hundreds of years ago that regular pentagons do NOT tessellate. there are methods for tessellating pentagons, but they are not regularpentagons.yes the answer in the middle is write polygons can not tessellate

yes you can tessellate a triangle and a pentagon together.

No because the angles are not factors of 360 degrees

Shapes tessellate to fit around an interior angle. They also tessellate because they are regular polygons; non-regular polygons cannot tessellate. * * * * * Not correct. All triangles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, whether regular or irregular. Contrary to the above answer, a regular pentagon will not tessellate but there are 14 different irregular pentagons which will tessellate (the last was discovered in 2015). Three convex hexagons will do so as well. No polygon of 7 or more sides will tessellate - whether they are regular (contrary to the above answer) or irregular.
