the remainder theorem - Please Help!!

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!

  1. You do not have to expand it,
    the remainder theorem would say here that
    f(3) = 33, so
    (9+2k)^3 + (12-7)^2 = 33
    (9+2k)^3 = 8 , take the cube roo
    9+2k = 2
    2k = -7
    k = -7/2
