I am not entirely sure in which context you are asking, but triple > double > single bonds in decreasing order.

In terms of bond energy triple bonds have the largest bond energy while single bonds have the smallest bond energy. Lone pair electrons also repel other lone pair electrons on adjacent atoms which contributes to single bonds having weaker bonds.

The strength of a bond is determined by how much energy is needed to break the bond (dissociation energy). Since single bonds are the weakest type of bond, it takes the least energy to break. Next is the double bond and the triple bond has the most energy because it is the strongest and requires the greatest energy to break.

I'm not sure if you mean bond strength, but if you do, single bonds are the weakest. Double bonds are stronger and triple are the strongest
