Let x be the number

given x/6=x-40

x=6(x-40)

x=6x-240

x-6x=-240

-5x=-240

x=-240/-5=48

given x/6=x-40

x=6(x-40)

x=6x-240

x-6x=-240

-5x=-240

x=-240/-5=48

so the number divided by 6 = x/6

Now as per the question x/6 = The number diminished by 40

Hence

x/6= x-40

Transposing

40=x-x/6

LCM of 1 and 6 is 6

so

40=5x/6

x=48

i hope it would help
