Any polygon with external angles which are equal to a factor of 360 will tessellate. The only regular polygons which will tessellate are equilateral triangles, squares, and hexagons.

No.

No because only polygons whose interior angles are a factor of 360 will tessellate. For instance a regular pentagon will not tessellate because its interior angle is 108 degrees but a hexagon will tessellate because its interior angle is 120 degrees which is a factor of 360.

No convex polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.

Yes, you can tessellate six-sided polygons by themselves.

five-sided polygons cannot tessellate

You cannot tessellate convex polygons with 7 or more sides.

Any polygon with external angles which are equal to a factor of 360 will tessellate. The only regular polygons which will tessellate are equilateral triangles, squares, and hexagons.

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.

For any polygon, there will be other shapes such that, together, they can tessellate.

Some polygons will tessellate,some with tessellate along with one or more other polygons,some will not tessellate.These classes have no specific names.

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.

Most regular polygons will not tessellate but if their interior angles is a factor of 360 degrees then they will tessellate or if their angles around a point add up to 360 degrees then they also will tessellate.

No because only polygons whose interior angles are a factor of 360 will tessellate. For instance a regular pentagon will not tessellate because its interior angle is 108 degrees but a hexagon will tessellate because its interior angle is 120 degrees which is a factor of 360.

No convex polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.
