By the use of wording "uniform" you are in fact stating that the tesselations are "regular"

It means with irregular polygons

Yes, there are only 8.

No. Squares and regular hexagons, both with an even number of sides, can make regular tessellations.

semi regular tessellations are made by using two or more regular shapes. Every vertex must have the exact same configuration.

There are eight different types of semiregular tessellations. Also called Archimedean tessellations, they occur when two or more convex regular polygons form tessellations of the plane in a way each polygon vertex is surrounded by the same polygons and in the same order.

the answer is true -apex

No. Regular tessellations use only one polygon. And, according to the strict definition of regular tessellation, the polygon must be regular. Then a tessellation using rectangles, for example, cannot be called regular.

true

Tessellations of regular polygons can occur only when the external angle of a polygon is equal to a factor of 360. As such, the only tessellations of regular polygons can occur when the internal angles of a polygon are equal to a factor of 360. As such, the only regular polygons which tessellate are triangles, squares, and hexagons.

Sometimes. By definition, a semi-regular tessellation must include more than one type of regular polygon. Some uniform tessellations use more than one type of regular polygon, but many uniform tessellations use only a single regular polygon. Therefore the statement is only sometimes true.

there are 8 possible semi-regular tessellations :) hop i can helpp .

Some facts on tessellations are that there are different types of tessellations such as regular and semi-regular. In tessellations, each vertex will have a sum of 360Âº which is what all of the angles should come out to.

Regular tessellations can be made using triangles, squares, and hexagons.

They can be but need not be.
