Hi!

Are to agree on and to agree upon equivalent??

And, my 2nd question: Can I say…

Whatever we agreed. [period!] - Or I must say…

Whatever we agreed TO/ON/UPON.


Thanks for your help! :)

    Yes. The choice is yours. It depends on how it sounds.

    Yes, almost certainly this is enough. If more is needed, it would be to give more detail to make it clear what we agreed - for example, when we agreed, or what we agreed about. I don't think you need to add to/on/upon.

    1. agree to-- be ready to; The General Manager has agreed to attend the function.
    2. agree with-- in agreement with (a person); I agree with you that the ...
    3. agree upon-- concede to (statements etc) ; After the meeting, we have agreed upon the 2nd and 5th points.
