• Algebra 1 -

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
