The relationship and the definition of derivatives and antiderivatives is described in this video. First, consider a function F(x)=x^35x+2 and another with small 'f', f(x)=3x5. f(x) here is the derivative of F(x). However, on the contrary, F(x) is said to be the antiderivative of f(x). There is a catch though; even though F(x) has only one derivative in the form of f(x), f(x) here has more than one antiderivative. This is because f(x)'s antiderivatives are of the form F(x)=x^35x+c, where c stands for any constant number. For example, f(x) antiderivatives can be any of the following: F(x)=x^35x+2, F(x)=x^35x, F(x)=x^35x+4... and so on.
