# Difference Of Squares

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

The square of the sum of the first ten natural numbers is (1 + 2 + ... + 10)² = 55² = 3025.

The sum of the squares of the first ten natural numbers is 1² + 2² + ... + 10² = 385.

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

## Getting Started

For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

## Installation

To work on the exercises, you will need `Opam`

and `Core`

. Consult opam website for instructions on how to install `opam`

for your OS. Once `opam`

is installed open a terminal window and run the following command to install core:

1 |
```
opam install core
``` |

To run the tests you will need `OUnit`

. Install it using `opam`

:

1 |
```
opam install ounit
``` |

## Running Tests

A Makefile is provided with a default target to compile your solution and run the tests. At the command line, type:

1 |
```
make
``` |

## Interactive Shell

`utop`

is a command line program which allows you to run Ocaml code interactively. The easiest way to install it is via opam:

1 |
```
opam install utop
``` |

Consult utop for more detail.
