x^10 + 7x^9 + 14x^8 + 1729x^7 - 1379x^6  = 0

 

x^6 ( x^4 + 7x^3 + 14x^2 + 1729x - 1379)  = 0        [ we know that x = 0 is a solution ]

 

x^4 + 7x^3  + 14x^2 + 1729x - 1379  = 0

 

Using the Rational Zeroes Theorem...the possible factors of 1379   are    ± [1, 7, 197, 1379]

 

However.....none of these are roots

 

The graph here shows that there is only one positive real solution :
