Use if...else in programming, as Valery shows. You can simplify the expression you show. In the first line t must be less than 123, in which case it can not be greater than 124. So you have three cases:

t < 123

123 < t < 124

t >= 124

Note that you are missing the case for t=123.

You need a return statement to make the program return a value and then exit:

Or you could assign the values to a variable, and put the variable on the last line:

Create a range variable from 1 to 1000, put the range variable on the x-axis, and FTOT(range variable) on the y-axis.

I suggest you go through the tutorials. It wouldn't take long, and it would answer most of these basic questions for you.
