Pretty much. All functions
3x^5 - 4x^2 + 12x + C
where C is a constant will have that derivative. So P=>Q, but there are an infinite number of other "Ps" (different honzero values of C) which also have the same derivative. So saying that Q=>P is incorrect because there are also an infinite number of other functions with a non-zero C.
