The simplest tessellation is shown above. It is composed of

equilateral triangles. The symbol 3 6 is a standard notation

for tessellations and polyhedral solids.

The large 3 in 3 6 defines the regular polygon as having

3 sides. The 6 defines the number of triangles surrounding

any vertex you pick. Note that the pattern shown has boundaries,

but the pattern can be extended withou limit.
