Here both a and b are assumed to depend on x:

Specify that a does not depend on x using the Constants option:

Specify that both a and b are independent of x:

Use TagSet to prescribe a constant:

Use SetAttributes to prescribe a constant:

For a constant f any expression f[expr] is also assumed to be constant:
