Here is an interesting article...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This raises the question...can any polygon with n sides be manipulated so that it will tile with other similar polygons? Can one find a shape of a 20 sided polygon that will tile with the same shaped 20 sided polygon, or a 53 sided polygon?

More to the point...is there any intuitive proof one way or the other?
