\begin{document}
   \[ (a+b) \]
   \[ (a^2 + b^2) \]
   \[ (\frac{1}{a_1} + \frac{1}{a_2}) \]
\end{document}

Use parenthesis in latex.

If you use fractions or large size equations, the best method would be to write \left(arg\right) command.

This will automatically adjust the size of the parenthesis based on the size of your equation.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
   \[ \left(a^2 + b^2\right) \]
   \[ \left(\frac{1}{a_1} + \frac{1}{a_2} \right) \]
   \[ \left(\frac{\frac{1}{a}}{\sin a}\right) \]
\end{document}
