Answer:

#C_(color(red)(6))H_(color(blue)(12))O_6(s) +color(green)(6)O_2(g)->color(red)(6)CO_(color(green)(2))(g) + color(blue)(6)H_(color(blue)(2))O(g)#

Explanation:

The complete combustion of glucose will give carbon dioxide and water, therefore, the balanced chemical equation can be written as:

#C_(color(red)(6))H_(color(blue)(12))O_6(s) +color(green)(6)O_2(g)->color(red)(6)CO_(color(green)(2))(g) + color(blue)(6)H_(color(blue)(2))O(g)#
