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

square, equillateral triangle, & regular hexagon

An equilateral triangle, a square and a hexagon.

YES!! It will tessellate. Ask me more questions!!!

Not a regular pentagon (equal sides) and square. But suppose the pentagons are shaped like a child's drawing of a house: a square with a triangle on top where the triangle is a right isosceles triangle (90, 45, 45 deg). Align a line of these pentagons with their "rooves" facing up. Next put a second row of inverted pentagons on top - apex-to-apex. The holes left will be squares. So tessellate away.

No.

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.

An isosceles triangle has two equal sides and one that isn't. A regular triangle has three equal sides.

A regular polygon is one which has all equal sides. But in an isosceles triangle, only 2 sides are equal. The third side has a different measure.Thus an isosceles acute triangle is not a regular polygon.

Yes a regular triangle will tessellate as will all other types of triangles.

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.
