If i integrate (2x+5) using the simplest rule, i get x^{2}+5x+c, however if i use the linear function method, i would get (2x+5)^2/4 +c so simplifying it i get (4x^2+20x+25)/4 +c=x^2+5x+25/4+c. So does it mean when i use the two different methods my constant,c is different?

2. Relevant equations

linear integration rule

3. The attempt at a solution

So does it mean when i use the two different methods my constant,c is different?
