The scaling factor from one generation to the next is 1/3. A single example is shown through four iterations. With nine smaller tiles and one centered tile in the reptile, this fractal can be thought of as a trapezoid analog to the Sierpinski Carpet. As with the other trapezoid reptiles shown on the main page, the angles in this trapezoid are multiples of 60 degrees.
