Problem of the Week

Problem D

An Exponential Year

When the expression \(10^{2021}-2021\) is evaluated, the result is a very large number.
You probably do not have enough time to perform the calculation. So, in an effort to save you some time and paper, instead of evaluating the expression \(10^{2021}-2021\), determine the sum of the digits in the difference.
