I assume that the calendar is 30/360.  The term of the loan is 148 days, in that calendar, or 148/360 years.
Interest is Principal times rate times time=703000×.0704×148/360=20346.3822..
The total payment due at the loan maturity is 703000+20346.38=723346.28

First calculate the interest.

The simple interest formula is Interest=PrincipalxRatexTime or I=PRT

Count the number of days from May 15-October 13.

Then divide that by 365 to get the time.

So you end up with I=703000x.0704x(151/360)

Then add your answer to the original loan amount and then round that answer to get the total amount.
