If you have a molecular formula of C(16)H(12)O(6) what does that tell you about the molecule?

Not much can be learnt from this description of an organic molecule . But an organic compound with 16C atoms and only 12H atoms along with 6 O atoms must be quite complicated
Are you sure you do not mean C6H12O6 - which is the carbohydrate glucose?

Not much, as the structure is lost by clumping each element together. But notice that there are twice as many H as O, so, given that the other is C, the molecule is probably a carboHYDRATE.
