In previous papers, the cases in which there is a possibility that a convex pentagon generates an edge-to-edge tiling were sorted, and the remaining 42 cases in which there is uncertainty about whether a convex pentagon can generate an edge-to-edge tiling were shown. In this paper, the latter 42 cases are investigated using a computer. As a result, we find that convex pentagons that can generate edge-to-edge monohedral tiling of the plane can be sorted into eight types.
