Calculus will seem easy if you have the right tutor!

Thanks but that's also wrong. I'm convinced that there is no correct answer.

Of course it's wrong...I see that I neglected to use the upper boundary y=3.
Your remark that there is no answer is wrong, too.
 
The problem must be done by expressing the integrand as 3 - (expression for the line) and integrating from 0 to 1. Then there's another part, that must have the integrand 3 - 2.5 sqrtx), integrated from 1 until the point where the two curves intersect, which you find by setting the integrand to zero, i.e. 3 = 2.5sqrt(x).
 
I believe this sets you onto the correct path.
