The **T-tetromino** is a 4-polyomino.

It may be considered as an 8-sided figure with a single length 3 side, or as a 10-sided figure with colinear edges. The latter is most common when considering tessellations involving the T-tetromino as it makes it equilateral.

## Related polytopes[edit | edit source]

The prism of the T-tetromino is the T-tetracube. It has two T-tetromino faces, and is the only tetracube with T-tetromino faces.

The T-tetromino is the smallest of a general class of polyominos, the T-polyominos. The other members of this family can be formed by extending the central leg with additional squares while maintaining reflection symmetry.
