For single bonds, they have one sigma bond. For double bonds, they have one sigma bond and one pi bond. For tripe bonds, they have one sigma bond and two pi bonds. You can just remember that one bond is sigma bond and the rest are pi bonds.

Bonds-
Single: 1 sigma, 0 pi
Double: 1 sigma, 1 pi
Triple: 1 sigma, 2 pi

A sigma bond must be present if a pi bond were to exist.

A single bond contains 1 sigma bond. A double contains 1 sigma bond and 1 pi bond. A triple bond contains 1 sigma bond and 2 pi bonds.
