I am embarrassed to ask this question. I have seen PhD's not know the basic answer to questions. I have been humbled. Could someone help please. I am writing a paper and need the answer to a question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For the Fundamental Theorem for integrals of derivatives

[itex]\int[/itex](DF(x)/dx)dx = [F(x)][itex]^{a}_{b}[/itex]

I did not put in the limits on the first integral, too hard to use this system.

If F(x) = Constant, does the Fundamental Theorem give a constant.

I know the derivative is 0, but the equation I am using is at a min. for this constant, so it should give 0. The answer for x^2 is just x^2 but it is continuous and has a derivative. Questions always come up no matter what level you are at. Another PhD could not answer this. Call me a dummy, I do not care.

Would the answer be a that Constant. I could not find the answer anywhere.
