A sort of cheat way:

If the answer is less than 1 then 5/8 is bigger. If the answer is more that 1 the 5/8 is maller.

No, 2/5 is not the same as 5/8. To compare fractions, we can find a common denominator and then compare the numerators.

To compare 2/5 and 5/8, we can find a common denominator, which is 40.

[ \frac{2}{5} = \frac{2 \times 8}{5 \times 8} = \frac{16}{40} ]

[ \frac{5}{8} = \frac{5 \times 5}{8 \times 5} = \frac{25}{40} ]

Now we can see that 16/40 and 25/40 are not equal. Hence, 2/5 is not the same as 5/8.
