### Question

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

\[1^2 + 2^2 + ... + 10^2 = 385\]The square of the sum of the first ten natural numbers is,

\[(1 + 2 + ... + 10)^2 = 55^2 = 3025\]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.
