X pays 4800 at the end of the first year and 6820 at the end of the second year.

At a compound rate of interest of 10% per annum:

The 4800 paid at the end of the first year is equivalent to an initial amount borrowed of 4800/1.1 = 4363.63

The 6820 paid at the end of the second year is equivalent to an initial amount borrowed of 6820/(1.1)^2 = 5636.36

The total amount borrowed is 4363.63 + 5636.36 = 10,000

**The sum borrowed initially is 10,000.**
