All triangles will tessellate. All quadrilaterals will tessellate There are 15 classes of convex pentagons (the latest discovered in 2015) which will tessellate. Regular hexagons will tessellate. In addition, there are 3 classes of irregular convex hexagons which will tessellate. No convex polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate.

Only an equilateral triangle, square and a regular hexagon can be used to make regular tessellations but there are innumerable polygonal and non-polygonal shapes which will tessellate by themselves, and others which will tessellate along with other shapes.

No. Regular heptagons (seven sides) doesn't tessellate alone.

No. No shape with 7 or more sides will tessellate with multiple copies of itself. All traigles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, there are 14 irregular pentagons (the last was discovered in 2016), and a number of hexagons - including the regular hexagon.

Yes a regular 6 sided hexagon will tessellate

A regular pentagon will not 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.

A regular pentagon doesn't tessellate because of the way the sides are joined together and hes shape of the regular pentagon.Something along those lines anyway.....

No it does not tessellate you have to pentagons in order for it to tessellate. * * * * * It is not at all clear what "have to pentagons" has to do with this. No polygon with 7 or more sides will tessellate. Octagons will tessellate if mixed with squares but that is not "proper" tessellation since it involved more than one shape.

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

yes, most regular shapes can tessellate :)

No, it can't be tessellate.

No. Regular heptagons (seven sides) doesn't tessellate alone.
