How do you determine which bond type is found rather pi or Sigma?

Single bonds are sigma bonds. Double bonds are one sigma and one pi bond. Triple bonds are one sigma and two pi bonds.

From my understanding, as of so far, there is always one sigma bond between two atoms and the rest are pi bonds between those same atoms.

Single Bond = 1 sigma bond
Double Bond = 1 sigma bond + 1 pi bond
Triple Bond = 1 sigma bond + 2 pi bonds

Sigma bonds come first before pi bonds. Thus, a single bond consists of only one sigma bond. A double bond consists of a sigma bond and a pi bond. A triple bond consists of a sigma bond and two pi bonds.
