Let a = no. of singles titles

Let b = no. of women's doubles titles

Let c = no. of mixed doubles titles

a + b + c = 60

a = c+8

b = 2 + 3c

c+8 + 2+3c + c = 60

5c + 10 = 60

5c=50

c=10

so,

a = 18

b = 32

so,

18 = no. of singles titles

32 = no. of women's doubles titles

10 = no. of mixed doubles titles
