A certain college graduate borrows 8,000 dollars to buy a car. The lender charges interest at an annual rate of 10%. Assuming that interest is compounded continuously and that the borrower makes payments continuously at a constant annual rate $k$, determine the payment rate $k$ that is required to pay off the loan in 3 years. Also determine how much interest is paid during the 3-year period.
