Agree with/to/on something

Hello everyone


I would like to know whether I distinguish between the prepositions after the verb "agree" correctly.

1. Agree with: have the same idea or belief.
2. Agree to: Accept and carry out the plan or let others carry it out.
3. Agree on: A group of people reaches consensus

Example:
1. I agree with your plan. (I think your plan it's what I want to see.)
2. So, I will agree to it. (I will let you guys do it)
3. But there are some details that we need to agree on. (There are something that we still need to decide together)

Have I distinguished between them correctly?

    :thumbsup:Yes, you have.
    Thank you for replying.

    Actually agree to and agree on have something in common.

    A: Both sides agreed to a ceasefire. (The ceasefire might have been proposed by a third country)
    B: Both sides agreed on a ceasefire. (Both parties reached a consensus by themselves)

    Are these correct?
