Semi circles cannot tessellate on their own because they do not have a consistent straight edge to fit together seamlessly without gaps or overlaps. In order to tessellate, a shape must be able to fill a plane without any overlaps or gaps. However, semi circles can be combined with other shapes to create a tessellation, such as alternating semi circles with squares or triangles.

circles and octagon do not tessellate as they overlap each other or leave spaces between them.

There are many shapes: circles, ellipses, ovals (elongated circles), cardioids, any shape with a "hole" in it such as a annulus.Polygons will tessellate if combined with other suitable polygons.

No. Circles lack straight edges, and thus cannot tesselate with triangles.

The 2 halves in a circle are the 2 semi circles.

No cones can not tessellate.

No circles can't tessellate because tessellate means fits together without any gaps and overlaping. I hope this helps =]

There will always be a gap between any three circles and so they cannot tessellate.Rhombi, alone, WILL tessellate.

For a shape to tile a plane, it must be capable of sharing a border with a copy of itself. Circles cannot do this; two circles which do not overlap touch in at most one point.

Yes.

It has two regular polygons which can be used together to tessellate a plane.

circles, squares, rectangles mainly... but the odd semi circles etc...

No. Circles lack straight edges, and thus cannot tesselate with triangles.

Half a sphere, which is a 3D shape, is called a hemisphere. The semi-circles in the question is a 2D shape and will make a circle.

Truck drivers like semi-circles!! haha:)
