How can describe the bonding in PF5 using hybrid orbital?

The electron-pair and molecular geometry oF PF5 are trigonal-bipyra- midal according to its Lewis structurc and VSEPR theory. Five covalent bonds must point to the corners of a trigonal bipyramid. Therefore, the P atom must  have a single electron in each of five hybrid orbitals. the hybrid scheme is  Sp3d is required.  
Each of the five P-F sigma bond involves overlap of one of the phosphorus spec hybrid orbital with fluorine 2p orbital.
