Verify Stokes' Theorem for F and S

F=(y^2)i+(z^2)j+(x^2)k

S is the first octant portion of x+y+z=1

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that it should be equal to -1 from Stoke's theorem, but I keep getting 1/4 when I use the normal surface integral way. (I have to do it both ways)

The integral I am using is

[tex]\iint x^2 + y^2 + (1-x-y)^2[/tex]

What am I doing wrong?? :(
