The first line of input will contain the single integer N (1 \le N \le 500) .
For each of the next N lines, line t will contain two space-separated integer values X_{t_1} and X_{t_2} (0 \le X_{t_1} < X_{t_2} \le 10^9).

Output Specification

On one line, the length of the longest tunnel.

      You only need to find the longest tunnel, so you can choose either tunnel (if they're tied for the maximum length).

        indeed, since your printing out the length not which tunnel it is
