The word equation for photosynthesis is;

Carbon Dioxide + Water (with sunlight + Chlorophyll) -------> Oxygen + Carbohydrates (Glucose)

The light energy is used with the sunlight,water and Carbon Dioxide in a complex series of steps before it is ultimately turned into Carbohydrates (glucose)

Hope this helps
