General (Basic) maths I can do, but algebra etc. is alien to me.

I'm looking for some help in factorising the following expressions.

$\displaystyle cd + 6ce$

$\displaystyle 5x^4 - 3x^3 + 4x^2$

$\displaystyle 5a + ax -2b + by$

and finding the solution to this equation through factorisation:

$\displaystyle 4s^2 -11s -3 =0$

I also have another problem regarding solving an equation using the **Formula Method**?

I'll include the question in case it will help you, help me identify the formula.

$\displaystyle 5t^2 +7t =9$
