So, if the total amount of the flower was x then he used [latex] frac{1}{5}x[/latex] for cooking and [latex] frac{4}{5}x[/latex] was left then he used [latex] frac{4*3}{5*4}x[/latex]= [latex] frac{3}{5}x[/latex] to make bread and [latex] frac{4}{5}x-frac{3}{5}x[/latex]= [latex] frac{1}{5}x[/latex] was left. so the [latex] frac{1}{5}x[/latex] was packed into 5 containers, each container had [latex] frac{1}{5*5}x[/latex], which is [latex] frac{1}{25}x[/latex] of the total amount
