Let θ be the angle between mirror , then number n of images is
 
if ( 360 / θ ) is even then n = ( 360 / θ ) - 1
 
if ( 360 / θ ) is odd and object is placed symmetrically  then n = ( 360 / θ ) - 1
 
if ( 360 / θ ) is odd and object is not placed symmetrically  then n = ( 360 / θ )
 
------------------------------------------------------

case (1) , object is placed symmetrically , i.e. object is on anglular bisector
 
 θ = 40° ,  ( 360 / 40 ) = 9  , odd number   , hence numver of images n = 9-1 = 8
 
-----------------------------------------------------------
 
case (2) , object is not placed symmetrically , i.e. object is not on anglular bisector
 
 θ = 40° ,  ( 360 / 40 ) = 9   , hence numver of images n = 9
