First you have to find the payment.

You did not say, but I will assume that the payments are monthly.

let the payment be p

162000 = p( 1 - 1.00525^-360)/.00525

p = 1002.74

unpaid balance after 10 years

= balance if you had paid nothing - amount of the annuity for 10 years

= 162000(1.00525)^120 - 1002.74(1.00525^120 - 1)/.00525

= 136641.30

could be round-off error on their part, I kept max number of decimals using calculator's memories.
