(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm trying to figure out the electron pair geometry of NH_{3}. I know that its molecular geometry is a trigonal plane, and it has 4 electron pairs total, including one lone pair.

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

Should the e- pair geometry be a tetrahedron? I'm a little confused.
