Matter is not created or destroyed.

6H2O + 6CO2 ------------> C6H12O6 + 6O2

This is the balanced form of the equation.  6 water molecules + 6 carbon dioxide molecules equals 1 glucose molecule and 6 oxygen molecules.

All atoms must match on both sides to meet the conservation of matter.  If you add up the totals on each side you get:

12 Hydrogen

12 Hydrogen

18 Oxygen

18 Oxygen

6 Carbon

6 Carbon

Matter is conserved through the reaction.
