# How to Write Round Brackets Symbol ( ) in LaTeX

In LaTeX, you can write the round brackets symbol ( ) using the `\left(`

and `\right)`

commands.
The following examples show how to write the round brackets symbol in LaTeX.

## How to Write the Round Brackets Symbol in Text

We can use the `\left(`

and `\right)`

commands to write the round brackets symbol in LaTeX document for text.

Suppose we want to write the round brackets symbol in the text.

We can use the following LaTeX code to do so:

```
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
This is an example of using the round brackets symbol \( \left( a, b \right) \) in a sentence.
\end{document}
```

## How to Write the Round Brackets Symbol in Mathematical Expressions

For mathematical expressions, you can use the `\left(`

and `\right)`

commands to ensure proper formatting.

Suppose we would like to write mathematical expressions that contain the round brackets symbol.

We can use the following LaTeX code to do so:

```
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
An inline mathematical expression: \( \left( a + b \right) \).
A displayed mathematical expression:
\[
\left( a + b \right)
\]
\end{document}
```

Output: 👇️

In this example, we use the `\left(`

and `\right)`

commands to denote the round brackets symbol in both inline and displayed mathematical expressions.

## Conclusion

We can use the `\left(`

and `\right)`

commands for both text and mathematical expressions. This ensures that the round brackets symbol is properly formatted and displayed in your LaTeX document.
