__Tessellation__

A tessellation is created when a shape is
repeated over and over again covering a plane without any gap or overlap.

When you fit individual tiles together
with no gap or overlap to fill a flat space, you have a **tiled floor**.

We have already learnt that few shapes
such as triangles, squares, hexagons tile on a plane while few figures such as
pentagons, heptagons do not
tessellate on a plane.

** **

**1. Complete the shapes by filling the tiles.**

**2. Draw one more tile to continue the pattern.**
