No.

No. Equilateral heptagons (7 sided figures) do not tessellate the plane. Not if no other polygons are allowed. But if you allow a (non-equilateral) pentagon then you might be able to tessellate the plane!

A square can tessellate but a regular pentagon can't tessellate

Yes a regular 6 sided hexagon will tessellate

Yes, hexagons will tessellate.

True * * * * * No. The only regular polygons that will tessellate are a triangle, a square and a heagon. So a regular heptagon will not tessellate.

No.

There is no such polygon.

No.

The heptagon (7 sided polygon) cannot tessellate. The exterior angle of the heptagon is 51.43 degrees which makes the interior angle 128.57 degrees.

yes, most regular shapes can tessellate :)

It will tessellate if its vertices divide into 360 degrees evenly. The only regular polygons that will tessellate are an equilateral triangle, a square and a regular hexagon. There are other, non-regular, polygons that will tessellate.

No, it can't be tessellate.

No convex polygon with 7 or more sides can tessellate.

A square can tessellate but a regular pentagon can't tessellate
