Evaluate [tex]\int[(3x-y)dx-xdy][/tex] where C consist of the parabola y=x^2 from (0,0) to (1,1) and then the line segment from (1,1) to (0,1)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i did the integral of the y=x^2

parametrized

x=t

y=t^2

from 0 to 1

then i got my 1/2

but for the line segment do i just take the the integral using

x=t

y=1

but for the interval do i use 0 to 1 or 1 to 0
