I have no idea how to even start with this problem. I know the basics but this one just gets complicated. Please guide me!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the line integral:

∫C {(-x^2 + y^2)dx + xydy}

When 0≤t≤1 for the curved line C, x(t)=t, y(t)=t^2

and when 1≤t≤2, x(t)= 2 - t , y(t) = 2-t.

Use x(t) and y(t) and C={(x(t),y(t))|0≤t≤2}

Help!
