# Can a parallelogram Tessellate?

**parallelograms**, trapezoids

**tessellate**the plane; each in many ways. Each of these

**can**be arranged into an infinite strip with parallel sides, copies of which

**will**naturally cover the plane. A

**parallelogram**is cut by either of its diagonals into two equal triangles.

Then, can a rhombus Tessellate?

Answer and Explanation: Yes, a **rhombus tessellates**. We have a special property when it comes to quadrilaterals and shapes that **tessellate**, and that property states that all

Additionally, is a parallelogram a polygon yes or no? They don't need to have parallel lines or right angles. If you think about that, it means that a triangle is a **polygon**. So are squares, rectangles and, **yes**, quadrilaterals, **parallelograms** and trapezoids. They all are closed shapes with many sides, so they're all **polygons**!

Herein, what shapes Cannot Tessellate?

Among regular polygons, a regular **hexagon** will tessellate, as will a regular **triangle** and a regular quadrilateral (**Square**). But no other **regular polygon** will tessellate.

What are the 3 types of tessellations?

There are **three types** of regular **tessellations**: triangles, squares and hexagons.
