To get the 133!133! in the denominator's place of the sum of fraction,you will have to multiply 11 with 2×3×4×....×132×1332 \times 3\times4\times....\times132\times133 and 22 with 1×3×4×5...×132×1331\times3\times4\times5...\times132\times133 and so on till 133133.Then observe that mm will be the sum of these products,now observe that every product,except for one,will have 67 in it.The one which will not have it will be,167\dfrac{1}{67} that is,1×2×3×...66×68×69×....132×1331\times2\times3\times...66\times68\times69\times....132\times133.You basically have to find that mod 6767.That will be,123...66123...66=(66!)2=(1)2=1((mod67)1*2*3*...*66*1*2*3*...66=(66!)^2=(-1)^2=1(\pmod{67},this we have from Wilson's theorem!Swapnil Das

Remainder is 0 as m is 133*133!
