mam/sir, I made one formula to find the number of covalent bonds between the hydrocarbon so please will you tell me that it really works or not

Yes, but it would work only to find the number of sigma bonds in a hydrocarbons not pi bonds.
Covalent bond has two types (1) sigma bond formed by head-on overlapping hence it is strong bond (2) pi-bond formed by lateral overlapping, hence it is weak than sigma bond.
(1) In the case of alkane,
Cn-1Hn = (2-1) +6 = 7 sigma covalent bonds.
(2) In the case of alkene,
Cn-1Hn = (2-1) +4 = 5 sigma covalent bonds.
This formula gives the only number of sigma bonds, not pi-bonds
Best way to find out,
The number of covalent bonds in alkane = Cn-1Hn
Cn-1Hn = (2-1) +6 = 7
The number of covalent bonds in alkene = (Cn-1Hn) +1
= [(2-1) +4] + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
The number of covalent bonds in alkyne = (Cn-1Hn) +2
[Cn-1Hn ]+2= [(2-1) +2] +2 = 3+ 2 = 5
If you still have doubt you can post your query in the same section, We are happy to help you.
