    In the upper integral, you should go from [itex]-\sqrt{x}[/itex] to [itex]-x[/itex]. The other one is correct. Both integrals have the value -7/60. The integrand is negative in the region over which you're integrating ([itex]y\in [0,1][/itex]) so the answer should be negative. Lots of chances to mess up with minus signs here, so be careful....
