Plot[
Evaluate[
Table[
Tooltip[
y = (b/(b + 1)) (n/(1 - n)),
{n // N, y}],
{n, 5/100, 4/10, 5/100}],
{b, 0, 2}],
PlotLegends -> Table[
"n=" <> ToString[NumberForm[k, {3, 2}]],
{k, 0.05, 0.40, 0.05}]]

However, the legend is "upside down" compared to the order of the
plots. Either of the following will realign the legends

Plot[
Evaluate[
Reverse[
Table[
Tooltip[
y = (b/(b + 1)) (n/(1 - n)),
{n // N, y}],
{n, 5/100, 4/10, 5/100}]],
{b, 0, 2}],
PlotLegends ->
Reverse[
Table[
"n=" <> ToString[NumberForm[k, {3, 2}]],
{k, 0.05, 0.40, 0.05}]]]

Plot[
Evaluate[
Table[
Tooltip[
y = (b/(b + 1)) (n/(1 - n)),
{n // N, y}],
{n, 4/10, 5/100, -5/100}],
{b, 0, 2}],
PlotLegends -> Table[
"n=" <> ToString[NumberForm[k, {3, 2}]],
{k, .4, 0.05, -0.05}]]
