A rock band has 5 members, and 2/5 of the members play string instruments. Also, 0.4
of the members sing. Does the band have the same number of string instrument players as singers. I think no. Am i correct? Please explain it.

No, you're not correct.
Divide the numerator by the denominator:
2/5 = 0.4 
2/5 is 0.4.
