Problem 21d

Write the Lewis structure and give the approximate bond angles of N2H4.

I understand that the molecular shape is trigonal pyramidal, but I am confused as to how we are supposed to know that the precise bond angle is 107 degrees (rather than just 'slightly less than 109.5 degrees'), as stated in the solution manual.

Writing "slightly less than 109.5 degrees" would also be acceptable.
