What is the difference between a concave polygon and a convex polygon?

Any polygon that has an angle that is > 180º is a concave polygon. A convex polygon does not. e.g. All regular polygons are convex.


what is the name of polygons you given to a shape?

There are lots of different types of polygons Polygons are classified into various types based on the number of sides and measures of the angles.: Regular Polygons Irregular Polygons Concave Polygons Convex Polygons Trigons Quadrilateral Polygons Pentagon Polygons Hexagon Polygons Equilateral Polygons Equiangular Polygons


What are the similarities between regular polygon and a concave polygon?

A regular polygon is a special kind of convex polygon - one in which all the sides are of the same length and all the angles are equal. Convex and concave polygons form disjoint sets: so no concave polygon can be regular.


How do you classify the polygons that are used to create each tessellation?

There are regular polygons (with 3, 4 and 6 sides).There are irregular convex polygons (with 3, 4, 5 or 6 sides). There are [irregular] concave polygons with various numbers of sides.


Which of the polygons cannot be used to create a pure tessellation?

The only regular polygons which will tessellate are those with 3, 4 or 6 sides. But all irregular triangles, all irregular quadrilaterals, 15 classes of irregular convex pentagons and 3 classes of irregular convex hexagons will tessellate. In addition, there are concave polygons with different numbers of sides which will also tessellate.

How do you solve the kinds of polygons?

You cannot "solve the kinds of polygons". There are essentially three types of polygons: Regular polygons in which each angle is the same and each side is the same. Irregular convex polygons in which at least one angle or one side are different but there are no reflex angles. Concave polygons in which there is at least one reflex angle. Convex and concave are usually defined in terms of whether or not the enclosed space is closed, but the above definitions may be simpler to grasp.

Having concave and convex edges terminating in points?

The described shape is a polygon with alternating concave and convex edges that meet at points. Some examples of polygons that match this description include stars, arrowheads, or certain irregular quadrilaterals.


What is the opposite of Convex?

The opposite of convex is concave. Concave shapes have an inward curve, while convex shapes have an outward curve.
