Non-regular tessellations is a tessellation in which there is no restriction on the order of the polygons around vertices. There is an infinite number of such tessellations.

These are tessellations with nonregular simple convex or concave polygons. All triangles and quadrilaterals will tessellate. Some pentagons and hexagons will.

Non-visible tessellation or non-existent tessellation, perhaps.

Strictly speaking, no, because a semi-regular tessellation must be based on regular polygons and rhombi are not regular polygons. However, octagons and rhombi can be used to make a non-regular tessellation.

A regular tessellation or semi-regular tessellation or none.

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

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.

It depends. Strictly speaking, a semi-regular tessellation uses two (or more) regular polygons and, since neither an isosceles triangle nor a parallelogram is regular, it cannot be a semi-regular tessellation. However, a less strict definition allows non-regular components.

A regular tessellation uses only one regular polygon. A semi-regular tessellation is based on two or more regular polygons.

A regular tessellation is based on only one regular polygonal shape. A semi-regular tessellation is based on two or more regular polygons.

There are non-regular polygons with a wide range of sides which will tessellate.

A tessellation that uses more than one kind of regular polygon is called a semi-regular tessellation.

There is no such thing as a seni-regular tessellation. A semi-regular tessllation is a tessellation using two regular polygons: for example, octagons and squares together.

A regular polygon has 3 to 5 or more sides and angles, they should be all equaled. A regular tessellation means a tessellation made up of congruent regular polygons.

Only if the quadrilateral is a square.

The only shapes which will make a regular tessellation are:an equilateral trianglea squarea regular hexagon.

It is a tessellation which uses two regular polygons. For example, octagons and squares.

A regular tessellation is one in which a plane is covered, without gaps or overlaps, using copies of a regular polygon.
