If you want your answer in fraction form, it is $\frac{3}{40}$. In decimal form, it is 0.075. If you want a percent, the answer is 7.5%

#### Explanation:

Since the question is asking for the odds of a random apple containing two worms, the check revealed 3 apples with two worms out of 40 apples (worms or not).

You can write this as:
$\frac{3}{40}$, 0.075, or 7.5%.
