Dear student.

A glucose molecule on complete oxidation can only provide a maximum of 38 molecules of ATP,
Moreover, each ATP molecule on hydrolysis releases only 7.6 KCal of energy.

On the basis of values provided by you, If one molecule of ATP releases 7.6 Kcal of energy, the number of ATP molecules that can produce 686 KCal of energy form one one glucose molecule is about 90 ( 686/7.6).
