it depends on how much volume you have before and after the boil.
if you measure 1.040
gravity in 7
gallons of wort in the kettle, your wort contains a total of:
40 * 7 = 280
If you boil this down to 5 gallons, those 280 points will be spread out in 5 gallons, so the gravity after the boil will be:
280 / 5 = 56
Leaving you with 1.056
gravity on the 5 gallons.
