To find out the molar mass, you have to break down each of the elements, then add them up.
C6 = 12.01 x 6 = 72.06 (Beacause, there are 6 carbon atoms)
H12 = 1.01 x 12 = 12.12 (Because, there are 12 hydrogen atoms)
O6 = 16.00 x 6 = 96 (Because there are 6 oxygen atoms)
Now, you will add all three of the elements up: 72.06 + 12.12 + 96 = 180.18.
So the molar mass of glucose is 180.18.
