Abstract: In 2003, Pelantová and Twarock did research into the number of, and types of, tiles found in 1-dimensional cut and project quasicrystals associated with 7-order symmetry. In this paper we extend this to symmetries of order 9 (degree 3), as well as orders 15, 16, 20 and 24 (degree 4). Some discussion of the next case, order 11 (degree 5), is given.
