Given an array **arr[]** of **N** positive integers. Find maximum value of |arr[i] – arr[j]| + |i – j|, (0 <= i, j <= N – 1)

**Example 1:**

Input:N =4arr[] ={1, 2, 3, 1}Output:4Explanation:Choosing i=0 and j=2, will result in |1-3|+|0-2| = 4, which is the maximum possible value.

**Example 2:**

Input:N =3A[] ={1, 1, 1}Output:2Explanation:Choosing i=0 and j=2, will result in |1-1|+|0-2| = 2, which is the maximum possible value.

**Your Task:**

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function **maxValue()** which takes an Integer N and an array arr of size N as input and returns the maximum possoble value of |arr[i] – arr[j]| + |i – j|.

**Expected Time Complexity:** O(N)

**Expected Auxiliary Space:** O(N)

**Constraints:**

1 <= N <= 10^{5}

0 <= arr[i] <= 10^{5}
