Create a variable named good_numbers that is an re.findall() where the pattern matches anything in string except the num

I Tried this by myself and added an except statement, but python is saying syntax Error.

import re

string = '1234567890'
good_numbers = re.findall()
    (5, 6, 7)

Here are a few hints:

  • except is only used in combination with try, but you won't need either of them here
  • re.findall requires two arguments, a pattern and the string
  • the pattern you choose is what will accomplish the task
