The heptagon (7 sided polygon) cannot tessellate. The exterior angle of the heptagon is 51.43 degrees which makes the interior angle 128.57 degrees.

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

Mostly true - you cannot tessellate only regular pentagons in two dimensions, since you cannot sum up the intersection of the angles to 360 degrees. If you tessellate a regular pentagon in three dimensions, you end up with a dodecahedron.

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

Which polygons cannot be used to form a regular tesselation?

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.

Can irregular polygons 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.
