For two given positive numbers a and b. Find ab. Output your number modulus 109+7.

Example 1:

Input: a = 1, b = 1
Output: 1
Explanation: 11 % (109+7) = 1


â€‹Example 2:

Input: a = 2, b = 5
Output: 32
Explanation: 25 % (109+7) = 32

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function power() which takes a, b as inputs, and returns the answer.

Expected Time Complexity: O(log b)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Constraints:
1 ≤ a ≤ 105
1 ≤ b ≤ 1016
