Say I have the statement $\displaystyle \int \frac{\mathrm{d} y}{\mathrm{d} x}\mathrm{d}x = y$ How does the fundamental theorem of calculus make this necessarily true? When I see the formal statement of the theorem, it is usually in terms of a definite integral such as $\displaystyle F(x) = \int_{a}^{x}f(t)dt$. How does the later apply to the former if the former is an antiderivative and not a definite integral?
