no it cant be unless you use pentagons and octagons like on a soccer ball * * * * * That is an unbelievably rubbish answer! Tessellation - unless otherwise specified - refers to covering a 2-d surface, not the surface of a sphere. Normal soccer balls do not have pentagons and octagons but pentagons and hexagons.

Pentagons (including convex pentagons) have five sides. (The prefix penta- is greek for 5)

No, pentagons to not have right angles.

The Pentagon

No it will not tesselate.

Tessellation is covering a 2-d surface. Tessellation and making a 3-d shape are not compatible processes. 12 regular pentagons will form a dodecahedron.

There are infinitely many regular pentagons - a different one for each value for the length of its side.

The answer depends on how many lines are shared by pentagons. There are at most 160 line segments.

If you are thinking of a solid with pentagonal faces, a dodecahedron, there are twelve pentagons

regular pentagons have no parrallel lines. irregular pentagons might but it depends. :))

20 :)

A pentagon has 5 sides. If you have 4 pentagons, you use: 4x5=20. Therefore, 4 seperate pentagons have 20 sides. This is not true if you have them combined however.
