```Hi Manolis,

An easy question, so I expect to see at least 12 answers. Here are my
two cents.

4 possible function definitions:

Using piecewise (enter as esc-pw-esc or copy the below lines)
============
g[x_] := \[Piecewise] {
{150, 0 < x < 15},
{x^3, 15 < x < 24}
}

With conditions
===========
g[x_] := 150 /; 0 < x < 15
g[x_] := x^3 /; 15 < x < 24

With If[ ]
======
g[x_] := If[0 < x < 15, 150, If[15 < x < 24, x^3]]

and Boole[ ] (which yields 1 if true and 0 if false
==========================
=========
g[x_] := 150 Boole[0 < x < 15] + x^3 Boole[15 < x < 24]

To Plot:
======
Plot[g[x], {x, 0, 24}, Frame -> True]

Cheers -- Sjoerd
