All sorts of polygons can create tessellations. See attached link for some examples: http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessellation
The only shapes which can be used for a regular tessellation are:An equilateral triangle,A squareA regular hexagon.There are also non-regular polygons as well as shapes which are not polygons which can tessellate
A tessellation that uses more than one type of regular polygon
A regular tessellation or semi-regular tessellation or none.
A regular tessellation is when polygons are joined together leaving no gaps or overlaps
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.
Pentagons, decagons, and octagons will not tessellate. In order to create a tessellation, the sum of the angles at a point must be 360.
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
Regular polygons with 3, 4 or 6 sides.
It 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.
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.
