What is the sum of all real numbers x that are not in the domain of the function

f(x) = 1/(x^2 - 7) + 1/(x^4 - 8) + 1/(x^5 - 9)?

The real numbers not in the domain of the function occur where the denominators on the right-hand side are zero.  So, for example, when $$x = \pm \sqrt 7$$ the term x2 -7 is zero, so $$x = -7 \text{ and }x=7$$ are two values not in the domain of f(x).  Can you continue from there?
