Factor by Grouping


I am new to Mathmatica. I am trying to learn how to factor monomials and polynomials and at the same time learn Mathematica. How to I factoa equation such as

4+7xy-14y-2x

I need to group to (x-2)(7y-2).

Should be easy I think, but I can't actually figure out what the correct sequence would be.
