This figure as a percentage of all trains running on this route.

Response

 

I have summarised the information you have requested in table format below.  I have also included May 2019 information as ScotRail recently introduced a timetable change which provides an increase in the number of 42 minutes journeys on the Edinburgh to Glasgow via Falkirk High route.  

Table 1

All timetabled journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh via Falkirk High per day and the percentage that are scheduled as 42 minutes. 

This table combines all journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh in both directions for one standard weekday.
