    Matt said the solution 1/20 is the correct answer.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    step 1 :

    one fifth ÷ 4 = one part in five equal parts / 4

                        = (1/5) / 4

    The expression can be written as (1/5) / (4/1)

    step 2 :

    To solve the division of fractions, take reciprocal of the denominator and do multiplication.

    The reciprocal of denominator (4/1) is 1/4.

    step 3 :

    (1/5) / (4/1) = (1/5) [tex]\times[/tex] (1/4)

                    = 1/20

    ∴ Matt said the solution is 1/20 is correct.
