x^2/2 is an antiderivative of x, for the derivative of x^2/2 with respect to x is x. Formally speaking, can I consider x^2/2 + y, where y is a(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); variableand not a constant, to be an antiderivative of x, since thepartialderivative of x^2/2 + y with respect to x equals x?
