Hey, I think this question is fairly simple but I'm really lost on it ;(
please help!

The diagram shows a part of a pattern made from tiles.
The pattern is made from two types of tiles, tile a and tile b.
Both tile a and tile b are regular polygons.
Work out the number of sides tile a has.

I can't seem to find the diagram, but its from:

I imagine that you would be looking at a square with part of a polygon attached

You should know that squares and octagons co-tessellate
