# Polyhex Tri-Oddities

A polyhex *tri-oddity*
is a figure with ternary symmetry formed by some number of copies of
a polyhex that is not a multiple of three.
Torsten Sillke first studied them in 1996.
Here are the minimal known tri-oddities for the dihex, trihexes,
tetrahexes, and pentahexes.
Please write if you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case.

Mike
Reid found the red pentahex solution,
and proved that the straight trihex has no solution.

For hexahexes, see Hexahex Tri-Oddities.
For heptahexes, see Heptahex Tri-Oddities.
