## Related Questions      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.  A regular triangle, quadrilateral (i.e., square) and hexagon may be used.  A regular polygon having an interior angle measure of 168o has 30 sides and is called a triacontagon.   A regular polygon is a special kind of convex polygon - one in which all the sides are of the same length and all the angles are equal. Convex and concave polygons form disjoint sets: so no concave polygon can be regular. It is a regular polygon as for example an equilateral triangle  I assume that, by "Loonie", you mean the Canadian coin. Strictly speaking, it is not a polygon because its sides are not straight lines but if they were, it would be a regular hendecagon - an 11-sided regular polygon. No such regular polygon exist so it has to be some kind of irregular polygon but if each exterior angle was 30 degrees then it would be a regular 12 sided polygon it depends what kind of polygon but the sum of the angles will equal a # divisible by 90   we have 9 diffrent kind of polygons. Each polygon has a diffrent amount of line segments. a polygon is a flat figure and has no gapes. Since a regular polygon is a series of straight lines of equal length that eventually join up with the start of the first line, this means that the sum of the angles between each line must sum to 360 degrees. If there are 6 sides in the polygon then the angle between each line is 360 degrees divided by 6 sides = 60 degrees.This kind of regular polygon with 6 sides of equal length has a special name, it is called a hexagon. it matters what kind u want but i will be still a hexagon. it can be regular or irregular Only if you know what kind of polygon you have. If you know that you have a hexagon and one side is 1 cm, the perimeter is 6 cm. You only have to know the length of one side, since a regular polygon has equal sides. Perimeter or a regular polygon is the length of each side times the number of sides. You need to know both pieces to find the perimeter. &#9632; I believe to what you are referring is a concave polygon. This is when one of the sides "falls into" the interior of the polygon, which can be tested by a line test. The other kind of polygon, where all sides are exterior, are called convex.
