Displaying piecewise function with 3 rules on math editor

I am able to create a piecewise function with 2 rulesets (e.g. x when 0<=x<10, x^2 when x=10) using

left lbrace binom {input1}{input2} right none

However, if I were to have a 3rd line (e.g: x^3 when x>10) the 'binom' function in the form

left lbrace binom {input1}{input2}{input3} right none

doesn't work. Does this ability to add a third rule to the piecewise function even exist?

Instead of using binom, use stack which allows you to "stack" an arbitrary number of items one above the other.

Within a stack { ... } list, # is the format code to break to next line, e.g.

 left lbrace stack { input1 # input2 # input3 } right none

See the built in help for more details.
