    i learned that we factor it first and equal it to zero

    x-7 is worth trying (as last term = 7^) f(7) = 343 - 49 - 343 + 49 = 0 ok so (x-7) is a factor now find any other factors by dividing by x-7

    factor theorem if f(x) is divisible by x-a then f(a) = 0

    r^2 +6r - 7 ---------------- r-7 ) r^3−r^2 −49r+49 r^3 -7r^2 -------- 6r^2 - 49r 6r^2 - 42r --------- -7r + 49

    r^2 +6r - 7 = (r+7)(r-1) so factors of f(r) = (r-7)(r+7)(r-1)

    so excluded value is value of f(r) when r=7,-7 or 1
