Text must also be bounded by dollar signs (that is all text must be enclosed with a dollar sign at the beginning and the end). Also, I would recommend that if you want to see how someone produced the text they have written, just click on the reply button and you can clearly see what they have written.
How would you import LaTeX code into Microsoft Word?

I'm just curious how would I be able to type in a document of some sort? I'm keen on possibly writing my own notes and I think its alot more of a 'reader-friendly' too to use.

Obtain LaTeX: https://latex-project.org/ftp.html . Depending on whether you have a Mac, Windows or Linux, go to the appropriate link for that on that page.

Which exact link did you download? For Windows it should really just be an executable.
This executable will download the backend (all the stuff that interprets LaTeX and produces output), and often a frontend (the thing you use to write your documents, often with some tools to make it more convenient than editing the source file via other means.)
Also if you really want something more wordlike, you can try LyX.
(I don't like it though, as it makes some weird choices about formatting by default and some things are a bit clunky to change from memory. Once you get decent at using regular LaTeX it is blazingly fast, especially for more ambitious projects with lots of cross-referencing etc.)

Open what file? mactex is just a backend.
Download an editor like texmaker and work in that.

Sure, they all do pretty much exactly the same thing.
The power of LaTeX is in the code itself, frontends don't really matter.

The boredofstudies LaTeX formatting is different from traditional LaTeX, don't use the formatting on this site as guidelines.
Instead, just look up LaTeX tutorials, there are many.

How do you type up inequality signs?
Unless you use \begin{align*} \\ &= I don't know of any ways to do on actual LaTeX because I do not know of any page sizes larger than A4 to use in your preamble.
On the forum there's not much you can do. But by convention for a sequence nobody types out more than 3 terms before jumping straight to the final term. (P.S. you can use \dots to generate an ellipsis)
