  1. If it was just OH2 then it would be a differnt element, water actually. The brackets are there to indicate that it is together, and to show you there is 2 of each, the 2 just at the end as you put it would indicate only 1 oxygen atom and 2 hydrogen atoms. Because it is a compound it is placed together in brackets.
