you can make a hexagon

they have different degreeses because a different degrees is what make different types of shape

That is the property of thermoplastics. If they could not be formed into different shapes many many times then nobody would bother to make them.

you can make 2 trapezoids

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.

It hasn't changed that much.. Different shapes make different sounds, Different woods make different sound. The only thing that really changed is that there are new shapes but old ones are still being used.

The answer depends on the shape whose area is sought. For some simple shapes there are easy formulae. Then there are less simple shapes which can be broken down into simple shapes and their area is simply the sum of the components. However, in many cases, the best that you can do is to make approximate estimates.

You can make 12 different shapes (counting flips) with 5 squares set orthogonally (not diagonally). These are called pentominos.
