I was reading an older book on how to find the HCF and I wanted to know if it is a good technique or just a waste of time?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the highest common factor of 4x^3 - 3x^2 - 24x - 9 and 8x^3 - 2x^2 - 53x - 39

Is any one familiar with the method? Are there better methods out there?

Thank you.
