    In most cases:

    agree with = to be in accord with something or someone

    agree with an opinion, a rule, a person, a position

    agree to = reach an agreement over something

    agree to a change, a requirement, an offer, a settlement

    agree on = have similar feelings about a specific matter

    agree on politics, a resolution, an approach, a restaurant selection

    Hello Ali
    You agree with (someone). This means that both of you have the same opinion on something.
    You agree to a) do something
    b) something (e.g. an idea / an opinion / a plan ..etc.
    You (the two sides) agree on something (disputed / you have different opinions on)
