i'm really not sure how to do this question.

(3x+2k)^3+(4x-7)^2 has a remainder of 33 when divided by x-3. find k.

i tried to expand the expression, but i don't get a polynomial, so how do i apply the remainder theorem? i would really appreciate it if anyone could tell me how to solve this question! thanks!
