VSEPR Bond Angles for Shapes with Lone Pairs

I just want to clarify the bond angles for VSEPR shapes with lone pairs.

AX3E: trigonal pyramidal <109.5
AX3E2: t-shaped <90
AX4E: seesaw <90 and <120
AX4E2: square planar 90
(Doesn’t have a lone pair but just want to make sure) AX5: trigonal bipyramidal 90,120, and 180
AX5E: square pyramidal <90
(Also doesn’t have a lone pair but just want to make sure): AX6 octahedral 90 and 180

Yes the bond angles are all correct.

Those all look correct!
You can also think about shapes with more than two electron pairs, such as
AX2E3 linear, 180, or
AX3E3 t shaped, 90, or
AXE4 linear, 180 and so on
