Is this where you would utilize px, py, and pz? And is there a common trend to remember hybridization that one can follow?

Please clarify question.

Px, Py, and Pz are used to show which way the subshell is oriented (just think of the x, y, and z axis).

In terms of a common trend, use the amount of bond areas. For example, all atoms with 2 zones of electron density would be SP.

The number of e- density areas equal the hybridization. So for example, a molecule with 1 s and 1 p would have 2 hybridized orbitals and a hybridization of sp.
