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

Most regular polygons will not - by themselves. In fact, of the regular polygons, only a triangle, square and hexagon will. No other regular polygon will create a regular tessellation.

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

No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.No. Regular hexagons tessellate and cannot form a 3-d shape.

No only three can tesselate. they are: An equilateral triangle, a square and a 6 sided hexagon.

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.

five-sided polygons cannot tessellate

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.

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

Some can, but not all. For example, rhombi, rhomboids, oblongs, and isosceles triangles can tessellate; however, most irregular polygons cannot. * * * * * True, but an incomplete answer. All triangles and quadrilaterals, whether regular or irregular, will tessellate. No regular pentagon will tessellate but (as of 2016), there are 15 irregular pentagons which will tessellate. There are 3 convex hexagons, (regular and 2 irregular) which will tessellate. No polygon with 7 or more sides, even if it is regular, will tessellate.

Most regular polygons will not - by themselves. In fact, of the regular polygons, only a triangle, square and hexagon will. No other regular polygon will create a regular tessellation. However, for polygons with any number of sides, there are irregular versions that can tessellate.

No.

A regular octagon will not tessellate - the 'spaces' left over are squares.

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.

Shapes such as circles, regular pentagons, and heptagons.Most regular polygons will not tessellate on their own. Only triangles, squares and hexagons will.With irregular polygons there is more of a choice. All isosceles or scalene triangles, parallelograms, trapeziums and kites will tessellate as will some higher order polygons.

square and octagon

Shapes tessellate to fit around an interior angle. They also tessellate because they are regular polygons; non-regular polygons cannot tessellate. * * * * * Not correct. All triangles and quadrilaterals will tessellate, whether regular or irregular. Contrary to the above answer, a regular pentagon will not tessellate but there are 14 different irregular pentagons which will tessellate (the last was discovered in 2015). Three convex hexagons will do so as well. No polygon of 7 or more sides will tessellate - whether they are regular (contrary to the above answer) or irregular.
