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,$$(1 + 2 + ... + 10)^2 = 552 = 3025$$
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.
