I just saw this question but it doesn't answer mine. How do I define a function something like

f(x) = { bla bla if x<0 bla bla if x>0

The above question doesn't answer how to write f(x) before the bracket

Please help.

    If you want f(x)= before the bracket, then just write f(x)= before the \begin{cases} (and after the $ or \[) – marsupilam Apr 21 '17 at 17:38

LaTeX is very flexible. Although it is not WYSIWYG you can write it in a very logical way. So if you want to have to have f(x) precede your cases, just write it that way. Here with the example of the linked question.



    \[ f(x) = \begin{cases} 
          0 & x\leq 0 \\
          \frac{100-x}{100} & 0\leq x\leq 100 \\
          0 & 100\leq x

  • @Zarko C&P from the linked post in OP. I should have looked at it ;) But I'm too lazy to change for now. – TeXnician Apr 21 '17 at 17:46
