The compound interest formula is:

A = P(1+r/n)^nt

P = principal amount (the initial amount you borrow or deposit)

r = annual rate of interest (as a decimal)

t = number of years the amount is deposited or borrowed for.

A = amount of money accumulated after n years, including interest.

n = number of times the interest is compounded per year

8000(1+.08)^1*3

8000(1+.08)^1*3

= 8000(1.08)^3

= 10077.70

Chopsticks is right. It is compounded annually. PRT is no compounding.
