Generally, in the order their given I would put them in that order, for example if given the percentage of C,H, then O, I would write it as CHO. It probably doesn't matter but to be safe I would keep them in order :-)
Organic molecules are always written with Carbon first, then hydrogen. After that it is usually oxygen and then other elements in alphabetical order. Therefore. it is best to write it as CxHyOz.
