The honeycomb cells are in the form of a tessellated regular hexagon (six equal sides).

In a normal plane, only regular polygons with interior angles that are a factor of 360o can be tessellated. This means only three shapes: the regular (equilateral) triangle, the regular quadrilateral (square) and the regular hexagon. If the line were considered a regular polygon (with only two sides) then it would also be included in this list.

no it can not i have research it thoroughly i could not find any pictures of a regular decagon tessellated. i did but they all had different shapes so the answer is no it is not logically possible

If the hexagon's sides and angles are congruent, then it a regular hexagon.
