#2: Don't paraphrase the errors. "Has to do with parenthesis I think" is not very informative. Post the actual error you're getting. I know the error message may seem like gibberish to you, but people here know how to read them.
#3: The error message will actually tell you exactly what line the error is on. Give us that line number. That makes it much easier to find the problem.
