Problem type

It's Halloween and Henry_Zhang loves candy, but is too scared to go trick or treating (he's very afraid). He lives in a terrifying grid neighbourhood of dimension n x m. sankeeth_ganeswaran lives at (0,0) and he wants to deliver candy to Henry_Zhang who lives at (n,m). sankeeth_ganeswaran rides his old haunted broomstick but accidentally trips and squishes it, breaking it under all his weight! His broken broom can only fly him up or right on the grid. How many spooky paths can he take to get there? As the answer can be hauntingly large, find the answer modulo 10^9+7.

Input Specification
