    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
