Tessellation is the process of covering the plane with shapes without gaps and overlaps. Tiles on walls and floors are the most common tessellations. In this post, we are going to prove that the there are only three regular polygons that can tile the plane. Tiling the plane with regular polygons is called regular tessellation. These are […]

## Proof That Only 3 Regular Polygons Tessellate

Tessellation is the tiling a surface (in this case a flat surface) without gaps and overlaps. This concept is very important since many of the floors and walls are tiled nowadays. But tessellation is a lot more than that. It actually obeys the law of mathematics particularly angles. The plane can be tiled with just […]
