# Project Euler #006

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.

```
let sum_of_squares list = list |> List.map (fun x -> (x |> float) ** 2.0) |> List.sum |> int
let square_of_sums list = (list |> List.sum |> float) ** 2.0 |> int
(square_of_sums [1..100]) - (sum_of_squares [1..100])
```
