this involves knowing how to find the interior angle of a regular polygon
only polygons with an even number of sides are considered (i.e. they are examples of 'zonogons')
the rhombuses will all have the same side length
pairs of opposite sides are parallel, so stripes of rhombuses are formed when you 'step' from one edge to one parallel to it - a 'zone'

three types of dissection methods:
- spreading out from a vertex (a fan)
- spanning out from the centre ('rosette')
- adjacent edges paired, from the outside
what happens to e.g. the top left angles?
type 2, dissecting from the centre:
starting from pairs of edges on the regular (even-sided) polygon
sometimes this results in rhombuses at the centre and sometimes it does not
