3. The above formula gives the amount of compounded (monthly) interest earned over an 8-year period, but does not provide the payment needed to amortize the loan.

That formula for monthly payment m is

m = Pr/(1 - (1+r)^-n)

In this case, we have

m = 5000000(.10/12)/(1 - (1+.10/12)^(-12*8))
= 75,870.82
