Bonjour Ian, That's right. Whatever vous stands for is what determines what agreement is needed. Vous = Monsieur Martin = no agreement Vous = Monsieur et Madame Martin = plural agreement Vous = Christine et Sandrine = plural feminine agreement
Well what about vous vous etes cache?

Bonjour Orietta ! It's the same explanation: Vous = Monsieur Martin = "vous vous êtes caché" Vous = Madame Martin = "vous vous êtes cachée" Vous = Monsieur et Madame Martin = "vous vous êtes cachés" Vous = Christine et Sandrine = "vous vous êtes cachées" À bientôt !
