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.
