Hmmm I don't really know what to do exactly but from balancing the chemical equation I got: \[3C_3H_6O \xrightarrow[H_2SO_4]{\Delta} C_9H_{12} + 3 H_2O\]

This is from Solomons Organic Chemistry, the section on acid-catalyzed aldol condensations. This is a fun one that's for sure I am sort of distracted by it and taking my time to figure it out, but I think it's clearer to look at it by starting to go backwards.
Oh boy.
