% C = [12/44][mass of carbon dioxide/mass of oragic compound] * 100= 62.07%

% of H =[2/18][mass of water/mass of organic compound]*100 = 10.34

% of O = 100 - (10.34 +62.07) = 27.59

Next you need to follow the following steps
Calculate moles of each element as uou know about mass from the above mass percent values
No. of moles of
C =5.1725. H = 10.34. O = 1.72
Divide with number of moles by least number value i.e., 1.72 you get simple whole number ratio
C = 3. H = 6. O = 1
Empirical formula is C3H6O
