### Can you make any irregular hexagon that also has a perimeter of 24cm?

Yes. Start with a regular one and distort it by changing angles and lengths of sides.

### Why are hexagons so common in nature?

It's one of the only shapes which tessellates perfectly (think tiles, if you tiled a wall with hexagons then there wouldn't be any gaps. Of the shapes which tessellate perfectly (triangle, square, hexagon) it has the smallest perimeter for its area i.e. a square of area 10cm^2 has a greater perimeter than that of a hexagon with an area of 10cm^2. So, if you were a bee trying to make a honeycomb then the hexagon is best because it would use least wax to make a certain area of comb (because of the perimeter/area ratio) and also not waste any space (because it tessellates without leaving any gaps). Hope that helps.

### Are steel bars made in hexagons?

Steel companies make steel bars in hexagons

### What polygons were used to make the tessellation?

All triangles will tessellate. All quadrilaterals will tessellate There are 15 classes of convex pentagons (the latest discovered in 2015) which will tessellate. Regular hexagons will tessellate. In addition, there are 3 classes of irregular convex hexagons which will tessellate. No convex polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.

### What shapes can you make using hexagons?

The answer will depend on whether the hexagons are all the same size or not, whether they come together in a plane or 3-dimensions, whether they can join at vertices or only sides. Two hexagons, of the same size, that are coplanar can make a concave hendecagon (meet at side) or a concave dodecagon (meet at vertex). Two concave hexagons can also join (dovetail) to make one hexagon. The question is under-specified.

In addition, there are 3 classes of irregular convex hexagons which will tessellate.No convex polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.There are many concave polygonal shapes as well as non-polygonal shapes which will tessellate. For example of the latter, look for MC Escher's symmetric artwork on the web.

Triangles or squares or hexagons. There are also mixtures, like octagons plus squares.
