VSEPR formula with 2 central atoms

How do you determine the VSEPR formula with 2 central atoms? For example, in 4.21 D how would you find the VSEPR formula for N2H4?

You just pick one of the N's and do the VSEPR for that molecule because it would be the same and they are both central. This video helps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beA1lEDKSlQ

Also, if it were the case with central atoms with different VSEPR formulas, you would name them both.
