Answer:

One mole of #"C"_6"H"_12"O"_6# will be consumed if #"6 mol O"_2# are consumed.

Explanation:

Balanced Equation

#"C"_6"H"_12"O"_6 + "6O"_2"##rarr##"6CO"_2 +"6H"_2"O"#

The coefficients in a chemical equation indicate the number of moles of each element, molecule, or formula unit. In this equation, all of the substances are molecules. If there is no coefficient, it is understood to be #1#.

The balanced equation shows us that 1 mole #"C"_12"H"_2"O"_6# will be consumed if 6 moles #"O"_2# are consumed.
