Answer:$16,800

Step-by-step explanation:The interest is computed using the formula …

I = Prt

where P is the loan amount, r is the annual rate, and t is the number of years.

Filling in your given information, you have …

I = $140,000 × 0.03 × 4 = $16,800

Osvaldo would have to pay $16,800 in interest.
