INVERSION
If the conditional sentences contain ‘were’, ‘had’ or ‘should’, we can leave out the ‘if’ by reversing the position of the verb and the subject:

–         If you should see pears at the market, do buy some for me.

= Should you see pears at the market, do buy some for me. (Likely type)

–         If it were not for the helmet, more motorcyclists would be killed.
=Were it not for the helmet, more motorcyclists would be killed. (unlikely type)

–         If you had come earlier, we would have gone to the show together.
= Had you come earlier, we would have gone to the show together. (impossible type)
