The VSEPR formula takes the form AXE with subscripts present on the X and E usually, depending on how many atoms surround the central atom (X) and how many lone pairs the central atom has (E). In some cases, if there are no lone pairs, the formula would just be AX with the appropriate subscript. In order to know this formula, it is advisable to draw the Lewis structure of the molecule to see how many lone pairs may or may not be present.
