### What is a semiregular tessellation?

Tesselation that is slightly less regular than regular tesselation.

### What is a semiregular tesselation?

Semi-regular tessellation is using multiple copies of a few (more than one) basic shapes to cover a plane space without gaps or overlaps.

### What are the properties of a tesselation?

What is a tesselation? The answer is very basic. Tesselations are a shape, whether regular or unregular, placed in a repeated fashion. For example, hexagons, a regular shape, is placed in a tesselation, on a soccer ball. The properties of a tesselation, is that the same as, what is a tesselation? I guess the properties of a tesselation are just shapes or objects fitting into each other to form a tesselation. Hope it helped! By… Read More

A soccer ball is not a tesselation because it is made of hexagons that do not connect and it is a ball. therefore it is not a tesselation

### What are the names of a triangular prism?

A triangular prism is NOT a semi-regular polyhedron. The only other name is a pentahedron.

### Can a nine gon be a tesselation?

I do not know the answer. However, I think that for a shape to be able to be a tesselation, that the exterior angle of it must be a factor of 360. The exterior angle of a 9-gon is 40 degrees, and since 40 x 9 is 360, then yes, the 9-gon will work in a tesselation (there will be four of them that share one vertex). In fact, I have come to this solution… Read More

### Which condition will not create a gap or an overlap at vertex of polygons?

You might be referring to what's called a tesselation of space. Tiles on a floor are one example of a tesselation: each tile is a polygon (a square most often) and when they are laid on the floor properly there are no gaps or overlaps. A honeycomb shows another kind of tesselation.

### How many different types of semiregular tessellations are there?

There are eight different types of semiregular tessellations. Also called Archimedean tessellations, they occur when two or more convex regular polygons form tessellations of the plane in a way each polygon vertex is surrounded by the same polygons and in the same order.

### Why tessellations are important?

Tiles, tiles, tiles! The tiles in your house tesselate, so YES, don't think that tesselation is NEVER used! The pattern on your vase... TESSELATE! Even your piano keyboard tesselates. To tesselate means that they fit together without having any gaps or spaces. Tesselation is important because if the tiles didn't tesselate it wouldn't look that nice. Tesselation is also used for beautiful patterns that are just about anywhere! Tesselation is very fun to make. Some… Read More

### Is Betelgeuse a pulsating star?

Yes: Betelgeuse is a semiregular variable star so it is classed as a pulsating star.

### What is a repeating pattern of closed figures that covers a surface with no gaps and no overlaps?

A tesselation

### How do you make tessellation?

there are 4 different kinds of tessellations. you can choose which type of tesselation to make.

### What does tessellating mean?

Tesselation is where shapes are put together with no gaps or overlaping. The shape is also repeated.

### Is it possible to make a tesselation with a regular octagon?

No. To tessellate a plane you would also need squares.

### Can a regular polygon with an angle measure of 135 degrees be used by itself to make a tesselation?

Yes. :] Yes. :]

### What are irregular tessellations?

An irregular tessellation is a tesselation made of irregular shapes. Escher is famous for drawing these with animals in them.

### Tessellations that use only one type of regular polygon are called semiregular tessellations?

Its False not true On APEX its FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he made me miss this

### What is a pattern of closed figures that covers a surface with no gaps or overlaps?

Either "tiling" or "tesselation" is the usual term used.

### What style of Art is Escher?

He used mostly the technique referred to as tesselation. He specialized in repeating patterns and optical illusions.

### What are the regular polygons that make up a tesselation?

Triangles or squares or hexagons. There are also mixtures, like octagons plus squares.

### Is it possible to create a tesselation using only regular pentagons?

No because each interior angle is 108 degrees which is not a factor of 360 degrees

### How many triangles will fit about a point when tessellating the plane?

Six. This is true even if the triangle is thin, flat, or scalene, unless it's an unusual tesselation.

### What the word tesselation mean?

Tessellation is using multiple copies of one - or a few - basic shapes to cover a plane space without gaps or overlaps.

### What are the square units that cover a shape called?

Tiles Any shape can be covered with a number of similarly shaped figures such as triangles, this process is called tesselation.

### What shapes are tesselation?

Tessera can be any shape. Often they are assumed to be polygonal but that is not a requirement. To see tessellation based on other shapes see the set of "Symmetry" artwork by MC Escher.

Figure, face, or fundamental region. Figure: a set of points Face: a polygonal region of a surface Fundamental region: a region used in a tesselation

### Why are obtuse angles important in tesselation?

Obtuse angles are no more important than acute or right angles. The commonest tessellation uses squares (or rectangles) and these have right angles - not obtuse.

### Is it possible to create a regular tesselation with a regular polygon?

Certain polygons, yes. Squares, Triangles and Hexagons are all shapes which, in their regular form, can tessellate. Other polygons cannot.

### 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.

### How does a construction worker use tessellations?

Tessellations are are shapes being put together by fitting them in with each other example a honey comb is a tesselation. Anyway constuction workers could use Tessellations by using tiles for a floor or wall

### Why cant a regular pentagon be used to create a regular tessellation?

it can tessellate * * * * * NO IT CANNOT! A regular polygon can be used to create a regular tesselation if and only if its interior angle divides 360 degrees. The interior angle of a regular pentagon is 108 degrees, which does not divide 360 degrees so it cannot be used for a regular tesselation. . Three pentagons meeting at a point would cover 3*108 = 324 degrees - not enough to cover… Read More

### How is symmetry related to tessellation?

Tesselation (or tiling) generally implies translational symmetry, because you can generally move one part of a tiling over another a specific distance away and get an exact match (ie the tesselation is periodic). A counterexample (possibly the only one) is Penrose tiling, which is non-periodic. There is certainly no need for a tesselating shape to have either bilateral or rotational symmetry: all triangles and all parallelograms (including squares and rectangles) will tessellate. I'm afraid this… Read More

### What is the brightness of Betelgeuse?

Betelgeuse is a semiregular variable star located in the constellation Orion. It is the second brightest star in the constellation and the ninth brightest star in the night sky.

### How many faces on a hexagonal prism?

The prefix hex- denotes a six sided polygon, so a hexagonal prism will have a six-sided base and, in total, will have eight faces: it is an octohedron. Provided the faces are all regular the hexagonal prism is referred to as a semiregular polyhedron, but could be defined in other terms if the faces are irregular.

### What color is Betelgeuse?

Betelgeuse is one of the prominent stars in the Constellation of Orion.It is actually ORANGE-RED in color.It belongs to the spectral class K ( with temperature 4,900 - 3,500 degrees Kelvin ) Betelgeuse is a semiregular variable star located approximately 640 light years from the Earth. It has a spectral type of M2 and a temperature of about 3,500K which means it has a colour of red.

### What is the dictonarey definition of the word tesselation?

First off it is spelled as follows tessellation a tessellation or tiling of a surface plane is a collection of objects or figures that fills the surface with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Usually you see tessellations with mosiacs and collages and such where there is no remainder of space in the backround.
