    like this? \[ \large f(x)=\begin{cases} x^2+1&\quad\hbox{if ...}\\ 1/x&\quad\hbox{if ......} \end{cases} \]

    To copy the code, right click the math, move to "Show Math As" and then click on "TeX Commands" Then copy paste the text that appears in the new window.

    "\leq" gives you \(\leq\) "\geq" gives you \(\geq\)

    \large f(x)=\begin{cases} 2-x &\quad\hbox{if x < -1}\\ x^3 + x^2 +3 &\quad\hbox{if x \leq 0 }\\x/(x^2+1) &\quad\hbox{if x > 0 } \end{cases}

    u have to write "\hbox{if $x\leq0$}" or \[\verb"\hbox{if \(x\leq0\)}"\]
