To help with figuring out the bond angles, it helps to draw out the initial Lewis Structure of a given molecule. This structure indicates the amount of bonding regions about a central atom and thereby directs you to its relative molecular shape. Knowing the basic arrangement of the trigonal bipyramidal molecule helps you understand how these original angles will be affected by the presence of lone pairs.
