When calculating the AXE do you include the lone pairs in the X?

When doing VSEPR formula, X are atoms whilst each E is a lone pair on the central atom.

A represents the central atom, X is the number of atoms bonded to the central atom, and E is the number of lone pairs on the central atom.

Lone pairs are included in the E part of the equation, for every lone pair you add an E. 2 Lone pairs is E2
