The sum of the squares of the first ten natural numbers is,

12 + 22 + ... + 102 = 385

The square of the sum of the first ten natural numbers is,

(1 + 2 + ... + 10)2 = 552 = 3025

Hence the difference between the sum of the squares of the first ten natural numbers and the square of the sum is 3025 385 = 2640.

Find the difference between the sum of the squares of the first one hundred natural numbers and the square of the sum.

Formula review:

The square and continuous natural numbers: 1²+2²+3²+. . . . . . +n² = n*(n+1)*(2*n+1)/6

The cubic and continuous natural numbers: 13＋23＋33＋…＋n3＝[n(n＋1)/2]2

And then found that continuous natural numbers of cubic and even and continuous natural numbers and the square is the same....

Continuous natural numbers and the square: [1+2+3+...+n]2  = [n(n＋1)/2]2

Formula to be  ```#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
using namespace std;

int main(int argc, char const *argv[])
{
int n;
while( cin >> n )
{
int sum1 = 0, sum2 = 0;
sum1 = n*(n+1)*(2*n+1)/6;
sum2 = (int)pow((double)((1+n)*n/2),2);
cout <<abs(sum1 - sum2) << endl;
}
return 0;
}```
