Best Answer

Tessellation is defined as the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions. A periodic tiling has a repeat pattern. A regular quadrilateral can be used by itself to make a tessellation.

Q: Can a regular quadrilateral be used by itself to make a tessellation?

No, it is not possible.

Yes a square will tessellate on its own

Not a regular one.

No, it is not possible.

Strictly speaking, no, because a semi-regular tessellation must be based on regular polygons and rhombi are not regular polygons. However, octagons and rhombi can be used to make a non-regular tessellation.

The only regular polygons are those with 3, 4 or 6 sides.

The only shapes which will make a regular tessellation are:an equilateral trianglea squarea regular hexagon.

A regular polygon will tessellate if its interior angle divides 360 evenly.

It can be used only if the measure of its interior angle is a factor of 360 degrees.
