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

How do you classify the polygons that are used to create each tessellation?

There are regular polygons (with 3, 4 and 6 sides).There are irregular convex polygons (with 3, 4, 5 or 6 sides). There are [irregular] concave polygons with various numbers of sides.

Which polygons do not tessellate?

Pentagons, decagons, and octagons will not tessellate. In order to create a tessellation, the sum of the angles at a point must be 360.

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 is the tessellation that uses more than one kind of regular polygons?

It is a semi-regular tessellation.

What is a semi- regular tessellation?

Semi-regular tessellation is a tessellation of the plane by 2 or more different convex regular polygons. A semi-regular tessellation combines two or more regular polygons. Each semi-regular tessellation has a tupelo, which designates what kind of regular polygon is used.

Which polygon will not tessellate a plane?

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.
