Electrical Question From Ray About Wiring Diagrams

Question:
I want to wire two 1.5 ton outdoor central air condensers rated 220V 20A each. I was hoping I only had to drag one #8-2AWG from a 40A breaker to one of two sub-panels and then a #10-2AWG to the second sub-panel.

Question: I want to wire two 1.5 ton outdoor central air condensers rated 220V 20A each. I was hoping I only had to drag one #8-2AWG from a 40A breaker to one of two sub-panels and then a #10-2AWG to the second sub-panel. Each sub-panel has a 20A breaker. What’s the best way to connect the 8-2AWG and the 10-2 AWG in the first sub-panel?

Additional Comments: don’t have any yet. first time using it.
