The zeros of the polynomial f(x) = x^3 - 33x^2 + 354x + k form an arithmetic sequence. What is the value of k?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so i let the zeros = a, b, and c. then i did b - a = c - b since it's an arithmetic sequence and they have common differences. so now i have a + c = 2b. i don't know what to do from here. help is much appreciated!
