      Those are parentheses. They basically close off a section in math, and they use the PEMDAS (Order of Operations - Must use in order) protocol (or multiply two numbers) such as:
      Ex:
      3(2+3) + 8(2-1) =
      (3 x 5) + (8 x 1) =
      15 + 8 = 23
      Parentheses (Answer what's in the parentheses first)
      Exponents (Do the math for the exponents)
      Multiplication (Multiply any numbers or variables)
      Division (Divide any numbers or variables)
      Addition (Add any numbers or variables)
      Subtraction (Subtract any numbers or variables)

    I dont have a pic but let me try my best to describe it for you guys. It has multiple forms that it comes on. Like a fifty cent piece. And on one side it has like a sheild with a crest or a horse with one leg bent on the front legs bent. A rider with sword or joust at half mast . oh ya and a serpent coming out of the water and the horse looks to be about to trample it with one of its front legs.and on the back it says " you are the key to the light"!.
