Suppose that $$a_2, a_3, a_4, a_5, a_6, a_7$$ are integers such that $\frac57=\frac{a_2}{2!}+\frac{a_3}{3!}+\frac{a_4}{4!}+\frac{a_5}{5!}+\frac{a_6}{6!}+\frac{a_7}{7!},$ where $$0 \leq a_j < j$$ for $$j=2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.$$

What is the sum $$a_2+a_3+a_4+a_5+a_6+a_7?$$


Notation: $$!$$ is the factorial notation. For example, $$8! = 1\times2\times3\times\cdots\times8$$.
