  1. Principal and interest after 8 months
    =8000(1+0.0276/12*10)=8184

    Let a=initial repayment amount (n=1), then the repayment amount at month n
    a(n)=a*r^(n-1) where r=2
    Total repayment amount
    Sum=a(1)+a(2)+...+a(10)
    =a(r^10-1)/(r-1)
    =1023a

    Equate total amount owing with amount paid:
    8184=1023a
    Solve for a.
