### Why does a tessellation have to add up to 360 degrees?

The angles at any point is space add to 360 degrees. So, at any vertex in a tessellation, the angles of the vertices meeting there must sum to 360 degrees.

### Does a semi-regular tessellation have a vertex of 360 degress?

Yes. Regular or irregular, the angles at vertices must sum to 360 deg otherwise you will have gaps in the tessellation.

### Because the figures in a tessellation do not overlap or leave gaps the sum of the measures of the angles around any vertex must be?

360 degrees, but this assumes that there are any angles. There need not be any angles - as illustrated by MC Escher in his set of Symmetry artwork.

### What is the sum of the measurement of the angles around the vertex point of tessellation?

The sum of the angles around a vertex point in a plane will always be 360o. Picture a bicycle wheel with all its spokes radiating out from the hub. Now pick two spokes to form a vertex. Find the angle of your vertex, and then subtract it from 360o. As there are 360o in a circle, and your figure (the vertex) is a slice of the circle, its angle plus all the rest of the arc about the vertex will sum to 360o. If you've discovered the angle of your vertex, you cannot help but find the sum of the rest of the angles (if there are more than one) around your vertex.

### Why is it that in a tessellation all of the angles that touch a given point must add up to 360 degrees?

The total angles around a point is 360 degrees. Since there can be no gaps or angles, all of the angles meeting at any vertex must sum to 360 degrees.

### What are facts about tessellation?

Some facts on tessellations are that there are different types of tessellations such as regular and semi-regular. In tessellations, each vertex will have a sum of 360ΓΒΊ which is what all of the angles should come out to.

### Do complementary angles have to have the same vertex?

No, complementary angles do not need to have the same vertex. Complementary angles are comprised of any two angles whose sum is 90 degrees. The definition of a complementary angle does not say that it needs to have the same vertex.

### What is the sum of the measures of the exterior angles one at each vertex of a polygon with 26 sides?

The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon add up to 360 degrees

### The sum of the measures of the exterior angles of an n-gon one at each vertex is?

The exterior angles of any polygon add up to 360 degrees

### What is the sum of the exterior angles of a polygon with 57 sides?

With exterior angles measured as in the related link (extending an imaginary line out from the vertex, so that the interior and exterior at the vertex add to 180&Acirc;&deg;), the sum of exterior angles of any polygon is 360&Acirc;&deg;: Interior / Exterior ______/............. Now if you are saying the exterior angle is all the way around the vertex, then you need to add 180&Acirc;&deg; for each vertex. So 360&Acirc;&deg; + 57*(180&Acirc;&deg;) = 10620&Acirc;&deg;.

### A convex polygon has 7 sides and one angle at each vertex Whats is the sum of exterior angles?

The sum of the exterior angles of a convex polygon which has sides and one angle at each vertex is 360 degrees.
