Answer

Each of the other 4 partners owns $\frac{3}{20}$ of the business.

Work Step by Step

The other partners own $\frac{3}{5}$ of the business, so each owns $\frac{3}{5} \div 4$ Estimate $1 \div 4 = \frac{1}{4}$ Solve $\frac{3}{5} \div 4$ = $\frac{3}{5} \times \frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{3}{20}$ Check $\frac{3}{20} \times 4$ \times= $\frac{12}{20}$ = $\frac{3}{5}$
