Hello I have many pdb files and I am trying to find full formula of an ligand in each pdb file without considering brackets?

So, I know that under FORMUL I can find a formula with considering brackets.

If the formula is 10(C5 N10 O5 H1) I need this version C50 N100 O50 H10. Or in other way how can I do this calculation for number of files?

For example for ligand ID FGA that I extracted from protein PDB with ID 2MTZ.pdb the formula is FORMUL 2 FGA 6(C5 H9 N O4) and when I searched the same compound in PDBeChem database for same compound under Formula it is written C5 H9 N O4. Which one is correct and how do I know if this compound has 30 carbon atoms or just 5?
