for glucose, empirical formula is CH2O

 

Element % Mole ratio Simpleest mole ratio
C \frac{3.758\times 100}{5.325} = 70.57 \frac{70.57}{12} = 5.88 \frac{5.88}{1.47} = 4
H \frac{0.316\times 100}{5.325} = 5.93 \frac{5.93}{1} = 5.93 \frac{5.93}{1.47} = 4
O \frac{1.251\times 100}{5.325} = 23.50 \frac{23.50}{16} = 1.47 \frac{1.47}{1.47} = 1

So, Empirical formula is C4H4O
