    We have to carry out an agreement.
    We reached an tentative agreement.
    There is a full agreement by order of magnitude.

    These three stand out. The second is wrong (a tentative agreement); the first means act upon the principles of a previous agreement, and isn't quite as natural as the others; the third seems a physics or chemistry sentence, but it also seems incomplete.
