Nate, read, reread, and reread again what Kenneth said. I used to be a math teacher and I heard " I hate math" more than you can imagine. You say you hate algebra because you are having difficulty with it. As soon as you get the hang of it you will have a different attitude. Enough lecturing. Here's a hint for the problem:

Look at the 7, the 4, the 28, and the 16.

Group the terms with the 7 and 28 and group the terms with the 4 and 16 because in each case one number is a factor (or multiple) of the other.

(7c^4+28c^2)+(-4c^3-16c)

now factor each set of parentheses by taking out the GCF of each set of parentheses and finish up from there
