Why am I still getting a 7?

Not sure why this still includes the 7...and when i add an eight it removes the 0.

negate.py
import re

string = '1234567890'
good_numbers = re.findall(r'\d[^567]', string)

Need to end it with a '$', also you dont want to capture all numbers with '\d' so do something like this...

good_numbers = re.findall(r'[^567$]', string)
