Does a decagon tessallate?

There are decagons which will tessellate.


Can you tesselate a decagon?

There are decagonal shapes which will tessellate the plane.


Does a decagon tesselate?

yes of course * * * * * A decagon does NOT tessellate. All triangles and quadrilaterals do, there are 14 tessellating pentagons and a number of hexagons (including regular hexagons). There are no tessellations which use polygons of the same shape - regular or irregular - for polygons with 7 or more sides.


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.


Can equilateral dodecagons that are not regular tessellate?

Yes. For example if you have a decagon in which the top, bottom and the four sides on the left are as in a regular decagon, and if the four sides on the right make the shape concave. These decagons will "slot" into one another.


Does a regular decagon tesselate?

No. It doesn't tessellate. (You cannot tile out an area with small decagons.) The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a polygon with n sides is (n-2)180° So the sum of all the interior angles in a decagon add up to (8x180)= 1440°. To find only ONE angle you need to divide 1440 by 10, yielding 144. 360 divided by 144 is 2.5, not an integral number. This shows that a decagon doesn't tessellate. In fact, only the regular (equilateral) triangle, the square, and the regular hexagon will tessellate. For example: The sum of all the interior angles in a triangle add up to 180. 180 divided by 3 is 60. 360 divided by 60 is 6 (an integral number). This shows that a triangle will tessellate. Try this method with a square (or hexagon) and you will see that it works (square 360/90=4 and hexagon 360/120=3).
