yes

A triangle... ...has three sides ...has three angles ...internal angles always add up to 180 degrees ...is a two-dimensional shape ...tessellates

Because all sides are the same length, and it is a regular shape. It tessellates, because if you lay squares of the same size adjacent to each other, they will leave no gaps.

Triangles, Squares and Hexagons always tessellate.

Select a shape that tessellates. Some shapes will tessellate by themselves, others will tessellate in pairs (octagons and squares), or larger groups. See the link for a flavour.
