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 roundoff error on their part, I kept max number of decimals using calculator's memories.
