# C Exercises: Find the difference between the sum of the squares of the first one hundred natural numbers and the square of the sum

## C Programming Practice: Exercise-22 with Solution

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.

Write a C programming to find the difference between the sum of the squares of the first one hundred natural numbers and the square of the sum.

**C Code:**

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
unsigned sum1 = 0, sum2 = 0, i;
for (i = 1; i <= 100; i++) {
sum1 += i*i;
sum2 += i;
}
printf("%u\n", sum2*sum2 - sum1);
return 0;
}
```

Sample Output:

25164150

** Maximum value of int:**

In C:

#include <limits.h> then use int imin = INT_MIN; // minimum value int imax = INT_MAX;

or

#include <float.h> float fmin = FLT_MIN; // minimum positive value double dmin = DBL_MIN; // minimum positive value float fmax = FLT_MAX; double dmax = DBL_MAX;
