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 shapes don't tessellate?

I believe that regular shapes will only tessellate if the sum of their internal angles is a multiple of 180.


Does a dodecagon tessellate?

Yes it does tessellate. * * * * * That is simply not true. No polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate with identical shapes.


Will a trapezium and a triangle tessellate together?

If their shapes are suitably matched they can tessellate together.


Why do shapes tessellate?

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.


Why do all quadrilaterals tessellate?

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.
