    If f(t)dt=e^(3x)cos(x)|0 to x then using the Fundamental Theorem of calculus you get f(t)dt=[e^(3x)cos(x)+c]-[e^(0)*cos(0)+c]=e^3x*cos(x)-1+(c-c)=e^3x*cos(x)-1. The definite integral doesn't have a constant simply because the c cancels when you subtract.

    I think you can simply find the answer by setting x=0 , you will find c=-1
