Answer:

Glucose, galactose, and fructose are monosaccharides that have the same chemical formula but different structural formulas.

Explanation:

Glucose, galactose, and fructose are carbohydrates, and monosaccharides in particular. The isomers glucose, glactose, and fructose all have the same chemical formula, #"C"_6"H"_12"O"_2"#. They are structural isomers, which means that they have the same formula, but the way the elements are bonded is not the same.
