POWERUP - Power the Power Up

no tags 

Your younger brother's teacher gave him this simple problem.

Given b and c. Evaluate the result of this expression:

Result1 = bc

Your brother definitely was able to solve this easy problem. So his teacher decided to give him a bit harder problem.

Given a,b and c. Evaluate the result of this expression:

Result1 = bc

Result2 = aResult1

However, your brother was also able to solve it. It was not that harder. His teacher was excited -though- and gave him this Bonus Programming Assignment.

Write a program that is given a,b and c; calculates the value of Result2. Since the output may be exponentially very large, checking the correctness of solutions will be a bit subtle problem. So, instead of printing the whole value of Result2, just print the reaminder of dividing Result2 by 1,000,000,007 (109 + 7).

Can you help him solve that task?


The input consists of several test cases. Each case is on a single line. In each case, given three space separated integers a,b and c (0 <=a, b, c <= 231 - 1). The input is terminated by a = b = c =  - 1


For each case, print exactly one line containing the value of Result2 modulus 109 + 7

Sample test(s)
2 2 2
3 4 5
-1 -1 -1


You can assume that 00 = 1.

Thanks for reply! :) I'll keep searching.
(Test cases removed to let you guys have fun too)

--Francky--> We agree that your sample are correct. Test cases are OK ; there's another kind of tricky cases. Good luck.
