1. first find the payment, let it be p

9000 = p (1 - 1.0175^-8)/.0175
I get p = 1215.39

Time -- p (payment) -- interest -- repayment -- Balance

here are my first 3 rows, notice they don't line up
I will use 0 for "Now" , at now we don't have any payments or interest yet, the "time" would be in quarter years

0 0 0 0 9000
1 1215.39 157.50 1057.89 7942.11
2 1215.39 138.99 1076.40 6865.71
3 1215.39 120.15 1095.24 5770.05
etc

I was off by 3 cents, due to round-off

b) add up the interest column
