Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

PV = C/(1+r)^n

This is the formula for present value

C = is cash outflow

r = interest rate

n= # of periods

so for this the formula is $1,032/(1+.0876)^8

=$1,032/(1.0876)^8

=$1,032/1.95773

= $527.14

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Sorry i misread the question

the formula should be 

$9,096/(1.0876)^8

=4,646.19

then take the 4,646.19 and subtract the $1,032 = $3,614.19= Net Present Value
