A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What are examples of regular polygons?

Tessellations


How many types of tessellations are?

Tessellations of regular polygons can occur only when the external angle of a polygon is equal to a factor of 360. As such, the only tessellations of regular polygons can occur when the internal angles of a polygon are equal to a factor of 360. As such, the only regular polygons which tessellate are triangles, squares, and hexagons.


How many different types of semiregular tessellations are there?

There are eight different types of semiregular tessellations. Also called Archimedean tessellations, they occur when two or more convex regular polygons form tessellations of the plane in a way each polygon vertex is surrounded by the same polygons and in the same order.

Which set of polygons will create a tessellation?

All sorts of polygons can create tessellations. See attached link for some examples: http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessellation


Why do tessellations have to be used with only polygons?

All shapes have to be polygons, because there is no shape that has 1 or 2 sides. A tessellation has to be a shape, so that it can be repeated. Its not going to be much of a tessellation if its a line.. lol.. that isn't a tessellation


What are the different forms of tessellations?

All tessellations, involve inlaying, its the materials used and the designs applied that make the difference.


Can only regular polygons with an odd number of sides can make a regular tessellation?

No. Squares and regular hexagons, both with an even number of sides, can make regular tessellations.

What does tessellation means?

A sub-division of space into discrete elements. Raster surfaces sub-divide space into regular tessellations such as pixels. Polygons are examples of irregular tessellations.

Why do most states have boundaries that are not straight line segments?

Because they cannot form a tessellation. Tessellations can only be formed by regular polygons.
