This is the summary formula for photosynthesis:
6CO2+6H20 yields C6H12O6+6O2

Refer to the summary formula for photosynthesis. If you know the number of molecules or moles of any of the reactants used (or products produced), how would you calculate the number of molecules or moles of all of the other reactants needed and products produced?

This question goes completely over my head. I'm confused.

    look at the ratios:

    ratio example: oxygen to carbon dioxide=6/6=1

    ratio example glucose to oxygen 1/6
    or
    ratio water to glucose 6/1
