    The percentage of questions correctly answered by the student was 92.5%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. Let's review the data given to us for solving the question:

    Number of questions incorrectly answered by the student = 3

    Number of questions on the test = 40

    2. What percentage did the student answer correctly?

    Number of questions correctly answered by the student = Number of questions on the test - Number of questions incorrectly answered by the student

    Replacing with the real values:

    Number of questions correctly answered by the student = 40 - 3

    Number of questions correctly answered by the student = 37

    Now, let's calculate the percentage:

    Percentage = Number of questions correctly answered by the student / Number of questions on the test * 100

    Percentage = 37 / 40 * 100

    Percentage = 0.925 * 100

    Percentage = 92.5%
