Let the money Daniel has = $x

Manuel has = 600 - x

Daniel spent 2/5 of the money = 2x/5

Manuel spent $40 from his money = 600 - x - 40 = 560 - x

Both left with the same money. 

560 - x =  \frac{2x}{5}

5(560 - x) = 2x

2800 - 5x = 2x

2800 - 5x + 5x = 2x + 5x

2800 = 7x

Dividing both sides by 7, we get

400 = x

Daniel has $400
