I think so, the question didn't specify limits in (a) so without + c you are technically incorrect.

Usually the mark scheme says (+c) in brackets as in previous years, so I don't think you'd lose a mark

That's what I thought, I did get 16.something though, and did work out f"(x) > 0, which usually gives you 2 marks (you don't need to sub)
