An [equilateral] triangle, square and hexagon are the only regular polygons which, by themselves, will tile a surface.

Yes it can tile. * * * * * No, they cannot.

no, u all suck

A regular octagon cannot tile a flat surface, it needs squares as fillers. An irregular octagon can tile a flat surface alone.

If it's interior angle is a factor of 360 then it will tessellate such as a square, a regular hexagon and an equilateral triangle.

A regular hexagon cannot make a 3d figure because a regular hexagon tessellates. As a result t will make a large tiled surface. If the hexagon is not regular then the side elevation will depend on the shape of the hexagons and how they are configured.

no

Hexagonal prisms cannot be regular. If you tried to make one it would end up being a hexagon since six equilateral triangles make a hexagon. Therefore, there is no surface area.

A 6 sided hexagon polygon can be regular or irregular.
