I'm not sure if there's any formula for bond length (at least not one that we've covered) but generally triple bonds are shorter than double bonds which are shorter than single bonds. it has to do with the fact that when you share more electrons, they're more strongly drawn to the nuclei of the atoms that share them.
As the response above me was getting at, remember that with decreases bond length you have increasing bond strength. We know that triple bonds have the largest bond strength and so they have the the shortest bond length.
