You can tackle most monthly monthly payment questions with the following formula.
AR^n=P(R^n1)/(R1)
where
n=number of compounding periods
A=Amount borrowed
P=payment at each period
R=interest rate per period, in the form of 1.08 for 8%
For the given case,
A=7000000
R=1.01
n=48
(a)Solve for P to get $184336.84 for the monthly payment
(b) The amount outstanding is the amount of the last payment less one month interest, $184336.84/1.01=$182511.72
(c) = difference between (a) and (b)
(d) = (b)
(e) = 48*(a)7000000
